When it comes to bears, how close is too close?
This probably qualifies.
Hunter Jeffrey Moffatt captured a particularly close encounter with a bear while on a hunting trip near Fort Assiniboine, Alta. recently.
Moffatt, filming from a tree stand, comes face-to-face with curious black bear, as the bruin shuffles its way up a tree in a matter of seconds, poking its nose at the camera for a sniff.
Luckily, the bear doesn't seem too interested in Moffatt, and slowly backs down the tree. As it wanders off, another bear can be seen walking away.
"Holy sh*t," says Moffat, turning the camera to face himself.
