Apparently in Russia, bears are no big deal!
Here’s how to deal with a bear like a boss! This video was shot in Russia and this is probably the most non-chalant response to a surprise appearance by a bruin ever.
The people taking the video are speaking in Russian, but what they’re likely saying comes through in a pretty universal manner.
That guy is one cool customer to just calmly sit by while it approaches him. Wonder what was going through his head? I’m pretty sure he heard the women’s warnings. What a way to not panic at the animal’s approach.
Still, this video demonstrates pretty well that usually a bear is going to be more afraid of you than you will be of it. The bear actually didn’t look too interested in him. That’s probably because he didn’t show any fear and did not act like a prey item. It may have been curiosity more than anything.
