|A Swedish man is videotaped at the moment of a close encounter with a bear|
If you spend a lot of time in the woods, (like I do) you sometimes wonder what the best approach is if you actually do encounter, say, a hostile bear. They say: "look big!"
Easier said than done, but the attached video shows that this approach is pretty valid, or at least it seems to have worked for one quick-thinking Swede. Now, a grizzly bear, (being much bigger and therefore presumably that much harder to intimidate) might not fall for this particular ruse, so we'll need to see a few more videos before this approach is endorsed as a means of repelling the rapid onset of a grizzly bear (Ursus arctos horibilis)
That said, watch carefully as this bad-ass Swede turns back the charge of a full-size back bear! Click here to access the link. Here is the gif:
