Slow down and look at that bear, they said. It definitely won’t charge at your car, they said . . .
This video was taken in Yakutat, Alaska, when two people driving down the road noticed a bear not far ahead of their vehicle. This is very common occurrence for folks living in Alaska, so they didn’t think much about it, other than they wanted a better look at the bear.
Typically, bears are afraid of humans – let alone a car driving toward them – and catching a close glimpse is tricky, but when they slowed down where the bear ran into the woods, the bear suddenly erupted from the bushes and then charged at their car.
Cody Kunau, the guy in the video, said after the incident, “Even though I was in a car, it was one of the scariest moments of my life!”
Kunau said he and his friend, Samantha, turned around to inspect what could possibly have agitated the bear and they found no cubs, no kill, or any evidence that would make this bear behave the way it did. All they got was another charge from the bear, and Kunau got out of the area immediately.
