A FIERCE gran fought off a raging bear with a watering can as it attacked her five-year-old granddaughter.

Armed with only a watering can, Elena raced into a “one-to-one fight” with the predator, according to her stunned relatives.

She struck the mighty predator repeatedly to save Masha from being “torn to pieces”, Komsomolskaya Pravda reports.

Eventually, the brown bear released the terrified youngster from the clutch of its paws.

Elena then yelled at the scared beast as it fled into the forest in Yakovlevsky district.

The bear is now being hunted by armed rangers to prevent a repeat attack.

Quick-thinking grandmother Elena also saved her daughter Yekaterina Podlozhnyuk, 32, Masha’s mother, who stood nearby clutching her newborn baby.

Elena’s other daughter Ksenia said that as she fought the bear, she shouted to Yekaterina to hide in the house with the baby boy. 

Both Masha and her gran are now in hospital with claw gashes from the predator, a young bear which stood at about 5ft 8 inches on its hind legs. 


The girl suffered head and neck wounds, and is with her father Yegor, 38, in a hospital ward. 

Elena had a deep arm wound after her battle with the beast. 

Ksenia has said her mum deserves a bravery award for saving her niece.

The 27-year-old said: “She works in an orphanage, and is especially sensitive to children.

“She is ready to give her life in the case of danger to others. 

“Of course, if not for my mother, people would have died.”

Ksenia has applied to the governor of Primorsky region, Oleg Kozhemyako, seeking an award for her mother. 

She added: “I hope it is not only us who recognise her as a heroine.”

“My mum deserves an award for saving people’s lives.

“We, her relatives, believe that she accomplished a real feat.”
