I know the feeling. Had a bear go through my campsite in the middle of the night while I was in a tent a few metres away. Wakes you up way faster than coffee!

That coulda turned out alot worse.
Was camped out under the stars in Yosemite back in '78, and had one sniffing the foot of my sleeping bag while I slept at the outer edge of a group of people. Fucker woke me up with his snuffing and snortling, and all I could think was "Jeepers - I must look like a freakin corn-dog to this guy" ...
I started yelling to scare it away, and then some on-leave airforce dude who was passed out in the midst of the group (the guy had gotten absolutely piss-hammered that night) jumped out of his bag and stumbled after the bear into the bush, yelling "I wanna fight me a bar!". He ended up all lacerated to shit from running through brambles, trying to catch the bear, which simply ran away.
Bear's been probably telling the other side of that story for years.
You wouldn't believe it; some jackass jumped out of bed and start chasing me. I spent two hours moseying through the blackberries listening to him get caught in the thorns till I had enough.
ive worked up on burke mountain for the past 5 years or so off and on
built some of the first haul roads up there through what was once dence bush so the bears were a daily sighting
got to the point we would toy with the bears to test their limits untill we actually had one charge us
that was the last time we ever fucked around with the bears
pretty impressive to see how fast a large animal can move
there is no way youd have time to react if they want ya
Was hunting for moose on the south east end of Babine lake on the side of Grizzly Mountain when we saw a Grizzly chase a Black Bear starting 1/4 mile away, that Black Bear made a bee-line for us and ran behind the pick-up and up a tree.
He hung out looking all hey don't notice me I'm just up a tree passing time, the griz stopped 150 ft away turned and poked off back towards the lake. I was amazed how fast a large bear can travel across the siding. on the road they paced us at 38 km/hr so your not going to run far.

meh. i got 400 lb black bears eating the neighbours garbage all the time. been 10 feet away from my door just stuffing his face.
I have a friend who came home at midnight and bumped into a black bear, thinking it was her lab she petted its head. After getting inside she sees her dog sleeping under the kitchen table, on with the porch light, gulp. Whew. That could have ended differently.
Yikes! That was a well fed looking bear, I wonder what his problem was?
If they are looking at you as dinner or an unavoidable threat... you've got a big problem. Those things are packing some serious horsepower. I might have considered shooting that one before somebody got swatted out of the tree... lucky guys. (And they didn't appear too concerned ?)
That is some awesome video...^^
he was prepared, not lucky.
not one of those idiots who walk around griz country without a gun. obviously knew what he was doing as well.
