Video: Grizzly Munches on GoPro Camera
OutdoorHub Reporters 06.30.14
Wildlife photographer Chris Weston mined a river in Alaska’s Katmai Peninsula with cameras hoping to get a closer look at its denizens, but one bear decided it was time for a close up—and a snack. Caters News Agency reported that an estimated 500-pound grizzly began chewing on one of Weston’s expensive GoPro cameras after it mistook it for something edible. It didn’t take long for the bear to realize the camera was anything but a tasty treat, but that didn’t stop it from tearing the camera off its flexible tripod. Luckily for the photographer, the camera survived with footage captured from inside the bear’s mouth.
