When a Canadian family noticed a group of bears on their property, the father attempted to scare them off by firing a warning shot into the air. Unfortunately, this provoked the mother bear, who charged. Amazingly, the man was able to fire off his last shot, momentarily knocking the beast off her feet and giving him enough time to make it back to safety. He later tracked the bear family, and believes while the mama bear is sore, she’s okay.
It may be fun teasing a bear, but when you over do it, you better watch out.
This was a close call one for this snowmobiler here.
Bears can be unpredictable and if cornered or threatened, they will fight and you’ll see some sharp claws coming your way.
Here’s proof from this POV video from someone in the Kuril Islands in Russia.
Yeh, you can’t keep egging the bear on like this and get to close. This one guy crept up on that bear a little too close obviously pushing his luck too far and almost paid the price.
No blame goes to the bear for protecting itself.
Its ok to observe nature, but don’t mess with it like this.
