Spotting a bear in its natural habitat from a safe distance can be a wondrous sight.
However, walking around your own home only to unexpectedly come face to face with a bear is a whole different story.
This happened to one man, whose close encounter with a bear was all captured on video and is going viral.
The bear and the man walked right up to each other and when they each catch sight of the other, they both turn and run in the opposite direction. Turns out, the bear is just as scared of running into a human as we are with them!
The video clip posted on YouTube this week doesn’t offer any details on where this happened, but thankfully no one was injured.
