Photographer Joshua Covill was in Glacier National Park on Tuesday, June 25 when he spotted a young grizzly bear trailing a man on the Hidden Lake Trail. The man close encounter ended suddenly when he turned around startling but himself and the bear.
“When he turned around, they both jumped backwards and the bear ran off downhill! The guy finished his hike, but I’m guessing he needed some clean shorts!” Covill wrote.
Remember to always hike in groups and carry bear spray. If you do find yourself in an encounter with a bear you should assume a non-threatening posture, slowly back away, avoid direct eye contact and talk quietly.
