This bear chose violence, and I can’t blame him.
No surprise that this brown bear was a little pissed off after being captured and transported in a metal tube for god knows how long. He immediately charges the camera tripod set up to document his release and goes to town on it.
Can you imagine if the same thing happened to you and you didn’t know what the hell was going on? I know I’d come out of that tube swinging, and I’ve never thrown a punch at somebody (other than my brother) in my entire life… Fight or flight response I guess.
I bet the camera’s owner was happy with the footage, but I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a hefty cost associated with a bear mauling his or her equipment. Oh well, worth the shot.
