Close Encounter With A Brown Bear In Alaska

Usually if you see a huge brown bear in the wild, you would avoid it at all cost! This guy gets an up close encounter with this huge brown bear out in the wild. The scary part is, there is nothing he can do but sit there.

I’d assume he has bear spray but from the video he doesn’t seem prepared for anything.

This is a pretty close encounter, especially after hearing of the bear attacks in Anchorage this past summer!

What would you do? I know I would have some type of bear protection, but even with that, there are no guarantees of safety.

If you are planning on traveling to Alaska, don’t forget the bear spray! We always hike with a can or two of bear spray!
