IRKUTSK, Russia, April 15 (UPI) -- A brave Russian man filmed himself hand-feeding some bread crust to a massive and hungry brown bear in Siberia.

The video, filmed in Irkutsk Oblast, shows the bear searching for snacks at night outside of the man's garden shed when it appears startled by the man's appearance in the doorway.

The man backs away a little, but comes back outside as the bear returns to searching for food.

A second bear soon arrives and starts eating a pile of bread crust placed on the ground by the man.

The bear then accepts a piece of bread offered from the man's hand.
