Hiker Scares Off A Bear By Roaring

There are a lot of random bear confrontation tips flying around for a hiker, ranging from lying on the ground and playing dead to climbing a tree. We’re also told the opposite: under no circumstances play dead and don’t, whatever you do, run away. Well this hiker wasn’t ready for a remake of Leonardo DiCaprio’s The Revenant scene and goes for something a little different. He roared. A lot.

In the video, the bear crawls along the top of the hill towards him and, despite the man trying out various tactics, keeps coming. “This is a situation every back country traveller never wants to experience,” the hiker said. “When I realised it was not deterring him in the slightest I knew I was in for trouble and realised I had one tactic left to call out his bluff. “Without my gun or spray I had one option and it was to appear a threat or at least a difficult meal.” The essence of the man’s roaring? “RAAAAA. No. You f**k off.”

It worked though and he lives to tell the tale and share this amazing video.
