Today’s video is as Canadian as Sidney Crosby slap-shooting a bottle of homemade maple syrup into a moose’s mouth…and that’s alright by us.

This friendly black bear only wanted to check out the view from the stand.

The bear got about halfway up the ladder when the hunter politely—and in a thick Canadian accent—asks the bear what he thinks he’s doing.



The bear looks about as guilty as I’ve ever seen a bear look, pausing before he climbs back down and scampers off.

Sometimes all it takes is politeness.
