Yeeeeesh. The hairs on the back of my neck stood up just watching this video.I can’t imagine how scary this must have been in the moment.
I know there will be some of you who say, ‘Matt. Bears are usually not aggressive towards humans unless they feel threatened.’ And I’ll respond by saying… WHO CARES?!
You can’t tell me that you and your buddies wouldn’t be crapping your pants if a huge brown bear just came strolling by while you were out on the trail. I know some of you pretend like you’re all macho or whatever, but I know deep down you’re all afraid of bears no matter how many encounters you’ve had in your life.
@bartusomerTake it easy
Fine, I’ll admit- maybe I’m being a little dramatic because I’ve never encountered a bear in the wild, but still! You have to admit that this was definitely a tense situation for these young mountain bike riders.
Thankfully they didn’t agitate the bear and just let it pass through. No harm to them, and no harm to the bear. The way it should be!
