Black Bear Attack Caught On GoPro

You'll hear one thing stated a dozen different ways when you visit parks in bear country- steer clear of bears, or you might end up mauled or dead.

This warning is enough to keep visitors on their toes and keep the timid from visiting parks in bear country at all, but some people act like it will never happen to them and roam around like they own the park.

The hunter who captured this bear attack footage on his GoPro camera is clearly one of those guys, because he thought he could take down a black bear with a lvl 1 archery skill!

This wild footage was captured by Richard Wesley while he was out bow hunting in Fire River, Ontario, and Richard seems pretty happy the bear didn't dine on his innards:

I am so happy after this confrontation with a black bear during our spring hunt. No wounds except a bruised elbow and ego where the bear threw me down. Genuinely happy that this was a non fatal or tragic outcome. Proving that the black bear is a wild and unpredictable animal. Again so happy with the outcome.
