         How to Repel A Charging Bear
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:
