I don't know who filmed that, but Darwin wrote about him years and years ago!

Held camera the wrong way. Also should have had a tripod to capture the mauling.

I have had two bear encounters, never saw either of them.

The most recent time I was hiking a trail when this weird smell came across my nostrils. I noticed the same odor in the past but never knew exactly what it was. Those buggers stink though. Anyway, I continue on and 10 minutes later I smell it again, this time along with a huff or grunt from the bushes off to the side of the trail. Knew it was a bear then. I felt fine though. If it was in predator mode, it wouldn't have let me know it was there, I wouldn't have smelled it and it certainly wouldn't have grunted to let me know it was there. The grunt was to let me know it's displeasure with me being there.

Then the other time. I no longer use a tent, set up a tarp if needed. So I was asleep while camping. I awoke to a huge pile of bear crap 3 feet from my head. That was a great story to tell. Makes me laugh thinking about it.

I see hornets all the time, but I'm not going to be poking the hornets nest. Nature happens, but most time, videos show that encounters are due to morons like this.

FROM watching it I wonder if that bear was darted, drugged.
When the video starts the bear is pretty wobbly and the guy taking the video could be a wild life worker waiting for the bear to drop, and thought he could roll it over...
BUT
looks like he over estimated the effects...

JMHO

I'm a solo hiker, and am often asked about bears and such.

The scariest (and most common) animal encounter on the trail is with dogs, off the leash and ahead (think out-of-sight) of their owners.
