Rescuers had to saw off a bear’s head after it latched onto a man’s leg in a horrific attack.

Bridger Petrini was out walking his dogs in Raton, New Mexico, last month when he came face-to-face with a 400-lb bear.

The bear charged at Petrini, knocking him over the edge of the hill and sending both of them rolling down the slope as the animal mauled him.

Petrini managed to pull out a pistol and shoot the bear dead, but its jaw remained clamped around the 36-year-old’s leg until rescue crews sawed the head off so they could free him.

Petrini detailed the shocking experience this week, admitting that he has gotten ‘way too close’ to the ‘overly aggressive’ bear.

‘When he saw me, he pinned his ears down and immediately made a big charge at me,’ the rancher and big-game hunter told local TV station KRQE.

‘Down the hill, we went again rolling and he had bit me a time or two but he was never able to get on my upper body, so my legs took most of it.’

Petrini shot and killed the bear while he was being mauled, but that didn’t manage to free him from the animal’s clutches.

‘Somehow or another, he had bitten down on my calf muscle it had basically twisted it over his bottom jaw so he died with his teeth locked and so I wasn’t able to get away from him,’ he said.
