This is one sight you NEVER want to see while hunting!
Richard Wesley was hunting in Canada when he spotted a large bear about 100 feet away.
The video shows the bear, just wandering around, not a care in the world, not aware of Wesley’s presence.
Then the bear starts to notice and makes his way to Wesley. The hunter tried to scare the creature by standing up, making himself look large, and making loud noises.
That’s what we are all taught to do, right?
For Wesley, his teacher forgot to tell him that this doesn’t always work…
The bear, undeterred, charges at the man!
It makes a leap at Wesley, seemingly to end the hunter. Thankfully, he is able to able to deflect the animal’s mouth with his bow.
There was more of a struggle afterwards.
‘I should have shot a long time ago,’ he said into the camera.
It is unclear whether the bear was dead or alive after the scuffle.
‘I am so happy after this confrontation with a black bear during our spring hunt,’ Wesley wrote in a caption with the video.
‘No wounds except a bruised elbow and ego where the bear threw me down.
‘Genuinely happy that this was a non fatal or tragic outcome. Proving that the black bear is a wild and unpredictable animal. Again so happy with the outcome.’
