“It is very difficult. He will wave the knife … it’s hard to say here. Maybe sideways in a fight. [Нужно бить] between the shoulder blades, in the heart. This area is hit. And he could also get into the liver, the lung – these are all fatal wounds. In the lung – the bear’s mouth will bleed … Of course, he could not fill it with one blow. He is tough on a wound, a bear … With a knife, you have a chance of one in a thousand. “
