Aremenian Bear Attack




YEREVAN, Armenia -- A shepherd tending his sheep flock was killed by a bear who apparently left the sheep untouched, regional authorities in Armenia said Thursday.


According to the press service in the Vaiots-Dvor region, the attack on 38-year-old Armen Ayrapetyan took place Wednesday. His body was discovered after relatives became alarmed that his flock returned home in the evening without him.


It was the first attack by a bear on a human in 12 years in Armenia, officials said.
