This Hunter Accidentally Stumbled Upon a Black Bear Den

This Is What a Black Bear Den Looks Like

Have you ever seen a black bear den before?

This hunter and his dog recently discovered a black bear den by accident. The dog stuck her head in a hole under a stump and quickly learned that it was a black bear den occupied by a very sleepy bear who did not appreciate being disturbed.

The bear unsuccessfully attacked the dog before retreating back into its den. Check out the video to see the footage of the black bear in it’s den that the hunter managed to capture after things calmed down.

How many times do you think you’ve walked right by a black bear den containing a hibernating bear without ever knowing it?

If you ever do stumble upon a bear den or a hibernating bear, make sure to leave it alone and leave the area as soon as possible.
