    Canadian man tries to reason with a bear to spare his life.

    This douche is lucky it wasnít a grizzly - there are a few (especially along the coast) in BC, Iím told.

    Black bear are relatively docile in grizzly country; I donít know what set this one off. Theyíre a little more aggressive when theyíre the top predator, but still not terribly dangerous if youíre alert and careful with your food. The victim here doesnít strike me as either.

    If a bear thinks you have food, and heís stoking up to hibernate, he can get really nasty.

    Couldn't get the video to work but how did the local man distract the bear, a bag of doritos, a picnic basket, what?

    If you are being harassed by a black bear then it has already smelled your food, or it's a mama with cubs.

    Always hike with someone who is slower than yourself, that will be between you and the bear at all times.

    You donít have to be the fastest in the group, just never be the slowest.

    That's what the little .22 NAA is for - slow down one of the group with a quick round to the kneecap

    Canadian man tries to reason with a bear to spare his life.

    If youíre running from a bear, and donít know if itís a black or a grizzly, hereís how to find out.

    Run to a tree and climb up.

    If the bear climbs the tree, knocks you to the ground, and mauls you, itís a black.

    If the bear rips the tree out of the ground, shakes you out of it, and beats you over your head with it, itís a grizzly.

    I was just walking along, minding my own business, when this bear attacked me for no reason...

    I smell road apples here. He pestered the bear somehow. Based on the looks of him he probably hollered "Shoo". Or like was mentioned up above Cubs to protect, or more likely in September in Canada, it was hungry, and the.part left out was he was stuffing his face while walking, and got a lot closer before seeing the bear than the story suggests.

    So they kill bears to examine them to find out why they attack humans. Maybe they just don't like having people in their habitat. Maybe the bear was having a bad day and then some idiot came a long.

    I want to know if that bear was "registered" and "licensed to forage".

    I've encountered blackies at least half a dozen times over the years. Fortunately for me, they've all been like Yogi and Boo-boo.

    Did you see the picture of that boy? He ain't climbing nothing.

    The injuries look like the bear just slapped him on the back in a gesture of, "It's cool bro, I was just playing with ya".

    He was waddling down the trail, a Big Mac in each hand, and four more in a bag, when he came across the "bear" (I still think it was squirrel). His refusal to drop even one of the Big Macs lead to the attack
