What would you do if you unwittingly bumped into a bear? Keep cool, calm, and collected and react rationally? For most of us, probably not. Jumping out of your skin and legging it faster than you can squeal seems more likely. But it seems such a kneejerk reaction isn’t always one-sided. As demonstrated in this video below, the unsuspecting bear is just as terrified as the human.
It doesn’t say where this footage was captured, but it does hammer home what we’re often told about animal encounters: they’re just as scared of you as you are of them.
