I had to laugh out loud when I saw this. Sorry, don't know how to embed the video but it is worth a view. Hope to send a chuckle to you all to start the weekend of right!

I have never had a bear encounter but if I did, this would likely cause me to be grateful for a change in undies...


One minute, you're the king of your castle, strolling in the yard with a drink in your hand and not a care in the world. The next, you're hightailing it out of there after coming face to face with a bear.

That's what happened in the clip above. And if you think the man was terrified, just check out the bear's reaction.

Sometimes, wild animals really are just as afraid of us as we are of them.

The clip was posted on YouTube with no explanation as to where or when it was filmed. However, several observers on reddit have pointed out that the animal's characteristics and behavior suggest it's a black bear.


(thanks to Muchmadness for embedding in his post below!)

ENJOY!

That's funny!

I don't blame the guy but the bear's reaction is hilarious.

Black bears get pretty light brownish. Even being called a "cinnamon" bear. Sometimes blueish grey. That's a very very very small grizzly if it's a grizzly. 300-400 pounds by the looks of it. That guy is very very lucky. That party doesn't end well 99% of the time.

I'd even bet closer to 200 pounds on third watch.

I think we just solved the question as to whether bears # in the woods. The answer is, "Not necessarily."

I would like to say that a bear that small wouldnt be that scary to me....but i know better. While my rational mind may know that I'd likely be able to not die in an encounter.....fight or flight still rules the old neural network.

Last week i walked out the back gate to the rear landing where I park. As i stepped onto the landing, i caught motion out of the corner of my eye that didn't fit in. I am used to the doves, quails, grackles...the calico cat from next door, the beagle and chihuahuas from the neighborhood that wander around from time to time....

This was none of those things, and it scared the holy hell out of me. So i jump, do a quick 3 step shuffle to the side, and turn to see what it is. It was a turkey. A wild turkey that comes around every few days, so isn't the daily part of my environment. Out of the corner of my eye I just saw something fairly large, and brown. And it moved.

Of course, once i saw what it was, the urge to flee left. And I could chuckle about how a turkey scared the living hell out of me.

One morning my husband and I were sitting having coffee on the sofa near the window, my husband looking past me says "Wow that sure is a big dog on our porch...lol I said that's not a dog that's a bear! he was just leaving for work so it would have been scary if he would have just gone on out before he realized it was a bear.

Brown bear

Poor bear nearly became a rug by jumping outta it's own skin from fright.

I've lived in towns that when you get past the edge, you're in the wilderness. Kenora and Campbell River are 2. Bears are just big racoons. They want your garbage and no human contact. I came across a cougar once outside CR. It wasn't hungry. Lucky for me. They REALLY don't want to have anything to do with us. Our garbage is just too damn good though.
Same with bears.

Bears may do that in the woods but I know where that guy just did it. Not that I blame him.

That was funny. The guy got very lucky. Even a smaller bear like that can mess you up.
