Richard Wesley bear hunting in the Fire River in Ontario, Canada, when a black bear turned and attacked him. Wesley GoPro captured the attack which occurred on his birthday. Fortunately Wesley only suffered a bruised elbow from hitting a log on the way to the ground.
“When he jumped on top of me, all I remember thinking is I’m gonna have to try to jab him in the face,” Wesley explained to CBC. “Like my dad always told us, the bear is really sensitive on his nose.
“That’s all I could think of is I’m going to try jab him in the face with this arrow and I’m falling down and it happened so quickly.”
