A 65-year-old man has told how he was dragged off a toilet by a black bear while on a camping trip in Canada.

Gord Shurvell, from Winnipeg, was on a camping and fishing trip with a friend near Ontario on Saturday when he went to visit the outhouse, CBC News reports.

Mr Shurvell said he had left the door open to enjoy the view when the bear barreled in.

"I'm sitting on the throne and my feet are sort of up on the 'poopstool,' we call it," he said.

"So I'm kicking at him to get away, but he grabbed my pants that were down around my ankles. And that was the start of it, and he just kept coming."

The bear grabbed hold of him by the shoulder and began dragging him outside towards the bush.

ā€œIā€™m screaming for my buddy to come with a gun,ā€ he said.

Daniel Alexander, Mr Shurvell's camping partner, came running with a gun and managed to kill the bear by shooting it in the head.

Mr Shurvell is now recovering after being treated in hospital for with scratches to the head, neck and arms as well as a puncture wound to the head.
