Man Casually Narrates Himself Walking Backwards Away From A Grizzly Bear And Her Cubs

August 1, 2017

This is a video of a camper in Katmai National Park in Alaska narrating his encounter with a grizzly bear and her two cubs. Apparently his plan is to walk backwards and not stumble until they lose interest in him. Not the best plan I've ever heard, but you have to work with what you're given, and apparently this guy wasn't given a backpack full of silly string and Bear-B-Gone. In the end, the bears eventually move on, forever altering the course of history and preventing this video from becoming this guy's last will and testament. I'll be honest though: I was really hoping he was gonna leave me his tent and sleeping bag.

Keep going for the video while I crack open a cold one for Timothy Treadwell.

Thanks to lizzy, who agrees if you encounter a bear in the woods, you better hope you're a tree.

    Walking through the woods in Alaskan grizzly country without bear protection.That is just the way we keep the Gene pool strong

    OH MAN I would actually shit myself if I was that close to a bear and her cubs. Even if you look at them the wrong way, the mother bear will fucking rip you to shreds.

    Casually my ass... You can hear the panic in his voice. He's pretty chill for someone who's practically running in reverse away from a mama bear and cubs. He's winded, he's shaking. Sounds like he's trying to think of some last words to leave for his loved ones when the camera is discovered next to his dismantled remains.

    "I just spent the last hour... Scared to death... Walking backwards 'away' from these bears....

    "Finally got away from them. Phew.

    What should I do now? Oh, I know... I'll follow them to the edge of the water."

    This a lot calmer than I was when I almost stepped on a coiled rattlesnake two months ago

    "I'm hoping ... somebody else comes along from camp"

    He figures he just has to outrun that other person...SMART!

    First you kick the other guy in the nuts, then you outrun him.

    I regularly wear a specially designed "grizzly-bear-chasing-you-and-the-other-guy-tries-to-kick-you-in-the-nuts" cup at all times...so I'm safe.

  • Freakin punk cubs. You know they were egging on their momma. "Come on ma! Tear this guy UP!"

  • Ollie Williams

    I can't tell from his narration, but is he walking backwards?

  • Munihausen

    That guy is about to have a whale of a problem.
