    "let us have our way." :jj:

    seriously scary situation, though. i've encountered many black bears in the wild but never had one do anything close to this. scariest situation i had was riding an atv and coming across a mother bear and three cubs crossing the road. mother bear reared up on her hind legs, i whipped a shitty (aka, a donut), and tore the fuck out of there.

    thankfully i just ran into three moose (separate times) on my latest hiking trip (pics):

    jesus christ, the jeep must have smelled bad with two loads in their pants.


    they did everything by the book. retreat slowly, don't turn around, and make aggressive noise.

    I've ran into bears in the wild and they usually go the other way when they see you.
    This one was following them like a pet dog. Maybe he just wanted to be friends.

    the way it's following, it looks like people have fed it before.

    which is a great way to get it shot.

    I had a 400lb black bear follow me out of the woods on a hike once. My dopey dog didn't see the thing until we made it back to the trail head.

    I do NOT feed them though, this one had obviously been fed by humans before. They even said if we had something you could have it. Dumbass peoples.

    i carry a canister of bear spray with me in my (new) backpack with me on hikes...just in case. i don't think i'll ever have to use it, but it's nice to have it.

    I don't understand why the bear didn't stop when they told it to. That bear should be reported for insubordination.
