We’re not sure about the circumstances of today’s video, but it’s terrifying all the same.
The gist of it is this: a homeowner in a rural area found a big brown bear underneath his deck, and the guy with the camera showed up to take care of the problem. We’re not sure if the cameraman is from Animal Control or what, but he seems a little underprepared.
He decides to pester the bear into leaving. A bold choice, to say the least.
He makes contact with the bear at about 44 seconds in.
I nearly jumped out of my chair when it bluffed an attack.
“I’ve dealt with some bears, but this guy’s huge,” says the cameraman. Armed with only a small can of pepper spray, he does what he can to bug the bear into vacating.
Check it out.
WARNING: Some mild NSFW language (a few S-words), so beware.
At about 2:40…after a few more terrifying bluff charges…the bear makes a break for it.
Like all escaping bears, it poops.
The cameraman follows it out to the front yard and watches it escape through the (hopefully empty) neighborhood.
I didn’t see a Police or Animal Control vehicle out front, so I’m inclined to think this is just a brave citizen.
I may not agree with your methodology, but I admire your boldness.
