Family Has Standoff with Grizzly Trying to Eat Pet Ducks

If you keep pet ducks in bear country, well…good luck. 

A rather crazy video has just emerged showing what seemingly appears to be three good-sized grizzly bears trying to eat some pet ducks. However, the owners of those pet ducks weren’t going to let them go without a fight.

Use caution when watching this video. There is some very harsh language. On the other hand, they handled the situation pretty well if those were the only bad words they said.

According to the report, this southern Alberta family did everything they could do deter the bears.

“I was out in the field doing some fencing and I came back to the yard in the truck at about 6:30 p.m.,” said Keith Lang, the father heard in the video. “I turned on the water to fill a trough for some cattle and horses and, when I did so, I looked down the laneway from the house and I saw three grizzlies coming.”

After Lang assumed the bears were going to stay clear of the house, they kept on coming. Lang continued to say that the bears must of noticed the ducks and decided they wanted a piece. After honking and some vehicle intimidation tactics, the bears eventually left.

“These ones did not care whatsoever and they weren’t going to be told what to do and they weren’t going to leave, they were going to stick around,” Lang said. “We made a pile of noise and I eventually drove that truck up to within about 10 feet of that bear before he left.”

Luckily, the family and the bears got out of the situation unharmed.
