Charging bear attacks hunter in terrifying encounter caught on video

A Canadian hunter is lucky to be alive after being attacked by a black bear. Man… Even looking at this gave me goose bumps! He is one lucky guy to have survived this bear attack!

Richard Wesley was bow hunting near Fire River, Ontario, when he noticed a large black bear roaming nearby. At first, the bear seemed unfazed by Wesley’s presence, but when the hunter makes a sound in an attempt to scare off the approaching bear, it charges.

Wesley attempts to make as much noise as possible, and even punches the attacking bear in the face. The camera falls and the hunter returns just a few seconds later, visibly shook by the near death experience.

“I should have shot a long time ago,” Wesley says into the camera just seconds after the attack.

Luckily, the hunter walked away nearly unscathed.

“No wounds except a bruised elbow and ego where the bear threw me down,” Wesley wrote on YouTube.  “Genuinely happy that this was a non fatal or tragic outcome.”
