While the National Park Service assures us that bears have little interest in eating humans, the bear in this video is not your average beast. A man was working in a Canadian forest when he noticed a cinnamon black bear in the distance. He calmly walked to another area of the woods, but the bear eventually reappeared. That time, it was even closer
As you watch the situation unfold, you have to wonder if this guy made it out in the end.
It is unclear what the fate of this man was, since at least three people in the comments section claim to be his cousin. Hopefully, the account that the man made it to camp and shot the bear with his rifle is the true story. No one wants to see an animal die, but in situations like this, self-preservation often takes precedence.
The National Park Service says that the best way to deal with a bear is to speak calmly and let it know that you have no intention of hurting it. If a black bear does attack, however, they urge you to fight back using any available objects, concentrating your blows on the muzzle area. Good to know.
