Justin Bieber's songs can apparently double as bear-repellant.

A fisherman in Russia was being attacked by a brown bear, but when Justin Bieber's song “Baby” played, the bear fled, reports the Austrian Times.

Igor Vorozhbitsyn had put the song as his cellphone ringtone as a joke, reports The Austrian Times.

"I know that sort of ringtone isn't to everyone's taste but my granddaughter loaded it onto my phone for a joke," he told the paper.

Wildlife experts told the The Austrian Times that "a sharp shock can stop an angry bear in its tracks."

Vorozhbitsyn was then rescued by a fellow fisherman. He suffered cuts and bruises to his face.
