Black Bear Stalks Two Very Frightened Joggers [VIDEO]
Picture this: You’re out on a jog with a friend in the Canadian wilderness. Suddenly you notice you’re being tailed. But it’s not another person behind you. It’s a black bear! What would you do?
That’s just what happened to these two gentlemen. Most outdoor enthusiasts and bear experts will tell you that these guys lucked out. They did just about everything wrong.
**Warning: NSFW language (obviously…these guys are being stalked by a bear!)**
Chances are, that bear was just looking for food from the joggers and not trying to meke them the food. But black bears can be very unpredictable.
It’s incredibly apparent that the guys were scared, but doing just a few things could have scared that bear away completely. First of all, they say you should never retreat. As they were backing away from the bear, they should have instead stood their ground.
One of the guys says to the other to get closer so they look bigger. That’s the right thing to do. It was also a smart idea to think about having a rock.
Needless to say, they lucked out! When all else fails, they need to remember that they don’t have to outrun the bear. They just have to outrun the other guy!
