Bear sightings aren’t uncommon in Alaska. But a bear charging a car? Pretty unusual.

Cody Kunau and his friend Samantha were driving back to Yakutat Lodge where Cody works as a fishing guide when the two saw a bear in the road ahead.

“Usually the bears run off,” Cody says in the video description, “and catching a close-up glimpse is hard.”

The bear retreated into the woods, so Cody slowed down to take a look. That’s when the grizzly erupted from the bushes and charged at the vehicle, stopping just short of attacking.



The incident happened just a few hundred yards from the Lodge, so Cody and Samantha turned around to see what was agitating the bear.

“We could see no cubs, no kill, or anything that would make this bear behave the way it did.”

It charged them again, so they went to the lodge to warn everyone of the incident.

“Even though I was in a car, it was one of the scariest moments of my life!” Cody added.
