A man was almost killed after being attacked by a bear in its enclosure. The incident happened in the rural Phetchabun province in Thailand on August 2, multiple news outlets reported.

Naiphum had been with four friends when he chose to visit the temple in rural Phetchabun province, Thailand, this morning.

Hearing about how the temple welcomes animal feeding, Naiphum went to the temple and allegedly held a bowl of food above the bear using a rope. The monks care for these animals but also allow guests to feed them.

There were a number of wild pigs enclosed in a small enclosure which was kept there to feed the bear (by any tourist if he/she wants to). The animal suddenly stood on its hind legs and grabbed Naiphum.

As the bear continues to eat Mr Promratee in its enclosure a man in white shirt is seen furiously beating the animal with a piece of timber in an attempt to stop the relentless attack.

It is also home to the giant, female bear that has been raised since a cub at the facility. The 36-year-old victim's friends started screaming and then rushed to his rescue.

The day before the attack, the head abbot at the Wat Luang Phor Lamai temple said some of the creatures were "hungry" because they were not being given enough food.

The temple had appealed for donations from members of the public to feed the animal.

A person from the group went into the cage with a large stick and beat on the bear until it let go of Promratee, who was pulled to safety by his friends and a monk.

But the struggle to save Naiphum is not over just yet. Emergency services arrived shortly after and the victim was taken to the hospital.

The black bear attacks the man at a monastery in Muang district, Phetchabun on Wednesday. They rushed Naiphum to hospital where he is now recovering and able to talk.

"If you taunt a hungry bear, you're likely to get hurt", a spokesman for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals told the Daily Mail.

'They suffer immensely when they're trapped in barren concrete pits, denied everything that's natural and important to them and left with nothing to do but pace back and forth and beg for food, often slowly going out of their minds with frustration.
