An intoxicated man broke into a bear exhibit at a zoo in Poland and was filmed attempting to drown the massive animal.

In the video below, the 23-year-old man can be seen standing inside the enclosure while a bear named Sabina moves towards him. Then, he jumps into the water to escape and swims to the other side.

Eventually, the bear makes its way into the water, and a fight breaks out between the two while onlookers are left baffled.

Firefighters were called to the scene to help rescue the drunk man. He was charged with animal cruelty and for not wearing a face mask.

“Sabina, an old bear who was attacked by an adult man, physically came out of this event unscathed, but she is very stressed,” said the zoo in a release. “At the time of this event, fortunately for this intruder, only Sabina was on the catwalk, although she is in good shape for her age, she is not such an efficient bear, otherwise the man would have had much less chance of surviving this event without serious injuries."
