We Don’t Advise It, But Here’s How to Scare the Crap Out of a Bear

A Swedish man walking his dog through the woods gets blindsided by a bear but he knows exactly what to do. 

A man in Sweden, Ralph Perrson, was out with his wife walking their dog. All of a sudden, the dog started barking hectically toward the woods.

A Eurasian bear erupted from the trees, charging at Perrson.

Perrson apparently knows exactly what to do in the event of a bear attack: stand tall and scream loudly.

That bear had no idea what he was charging. But he quickly decided it was scarier than himself and hightailed it back to the woods.

Perrson’s wife was filming and Perrson himself had a camera on his body so we get two different angles of the bear attack.

Perrson reacts to a charging bear in a textbook manner: he spreads his arms and fingers wide, screams like an other-worldly creature, and stands as tall as physically possible.

That is how you scare the living sh$t out of a bear.
