If you need something to raise your heart rate, this video should do the trick. These fishermen find themselves stalked by an overly-curious and potentially aggressive grizzly bear while fishing near a river. It’s a pretty intense standoff, but nothing (fortunately) winds up happenning.

These guys really are doing everything right. When the grizzly approaches, they begin to make noise, identifying themselves as people, and start to slowly back away. They don’t turn their backs on the animal and they keep calm, making sure not to startle the grizzly while trying to get it to leave. Most importantly, they have bear spray ready, so if the bear decides to charge, they can hopefully end the attack as quick as it starts.
