Guy Trying To Chase Bear Away From Fishing Camp On Snowmobile Has A Close Call

April 10, 2018

This is a video from Russia of two dudes on snowmobiles trying to chase a bear away from their fishing camp in Paramushir in the Kuril Islands, Russia, when the bear turns and takes a swipe at one of the guys. You got too close bro! It's fight or flight, but sometimes when you get too close flight can TURN INTO fight. Kind of like how paper can turn into rock after its already in my hand to beat the scissors my girlfriend threw when we're playing rock, paper, scissors. "That's called cheating." She still did the dishes! "Did she though?" God no, she made me do them for a month straight for breach of trust.

Keep going for the video. Also, I like how that guy in the background of the screenshot is about to vertically film his buddy getting mauled by a bear.

Thanks to Matty M, who agrees the best way to NOT scare a bear away from your fishing camp is to dress up like a sexy lady bear and dance. And to K Diddie, who's convinced that bear just wanted a hug.

    That's what you get for not hibernating.

    I'm no bear psychologist but I'm pretty sure if you corner an omnivore that weighs more than your house there's a strong chance you might die.

    Somewhat related, a friend of mine had a mid 90s Honda CR250R which is a 2-stroke dirtbike. He spent a couple hundred dollars getting nice loud exhaust pipes, better carburetor guts, and improved cooling so he could run better. The bike was so loud that it was unnerving to stand next to it when it started. I was following him in my car once and cruising through Elk country (coincidentally in Elk County). There were three mostly grown elk by the roadside. I see him look over, grab the clutch and rev the engine. The elk looked up and gave him a death stare. They didn't even flinch. These are herbivores that weigh as much as a house. They will murder you. They're not omnivores like brown bears. They weigh about the same.

    Good suggestion for dealing with wildlife... DON'T FUCKING FUCK WITH IT!

    Moose will flatten you. Very slimming.

    In that situation, chasing the bear away with a big noisy snowmobile is probably the right decision. Proving to the bear that it can't get away, then hemming it in with TWO big noisy snowmobiles? Basically proving to a large killer with a Fight/Flight brain that Flight isn't an option? Dude allllllmost got exactly what he deserved.

    that is how i felt

    There seems to be 50 retarded Russians for every normal one... And 500,000 normal Russians per smart Russian. Only smart Russians would be average people everywhere else.

    Fuck these assholes, you go into there territory to fish and get angry when a bear shows up for said fish. Fuck you, they have more of a right to it then you do. They should have fucked off to another location.

    Dayum, Russia. You kinda beautiful and what not.

  • Jenness

    Am I the only one that wishes that guy would have gotten mauled after chasing that bear around and circling back like that?

  • Daily Lama

    Nope. People are idiots, and sometimes nature should get to win.

  • Bling Nye

    Humans forget how easily mauled/eaten they are, they're too complacent with all their 'technology'...

    Yeah, was waiting for the bear to hit that "I've had enough of your shit," moment. Wonder what would've happened if he'd been knocked off his snowmobile.... would the bear have called it good, or gone for a few extra 'fuck you' bites?

  • Andrew

    he would have been totally fucked

  • Jenness

    Bear code demands a mauling in this case. Paragraph 5 section 12

    Wow so majestic... I bet that guy had a boner, cuz I know I would

  • Eric Ord

    "I bet that guy had a boner"

    ???

  • Bling Nye

    Boys have a penis, girls have a vagina.

  • Eric Ord

    Thanks for the teep.

  • Fartbutt

    "girls have a vagina"

    ???
