Bear Decides To Sit Next To This Guy At His Campsite. I Had To Hold My Breath While Watching THIS

We think of bears in the wild as potentially very dangerous to humans, while still holding this romanticized notion of “cuddly as a teddy bear” or “just a sweet big bear [of a man]”.  A camper at the McNeil River State Game Sanctuary and Refuge was peacefully watching from above as bears were fishing in the river below.

Drew Hamilton, an employee of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, was sitting in his camping chair when out of nowhere an Alaskan brown bear walks up next to him in a very relaxed fashion. He takes in the peaceful scene, Hamilton is viewing, yawns and takes a seat.

As Hamilton is a professional, he seemed to intuitively know that keeping calm and still was the way to go.  He videos the bear, who almost seems human taking in the beautiful moment of nature.  Incredibly, he seems disinterested in Hamilton, (probably because he remained completely calm) watches the bears below and eventually goes on his way, probably to join in the fun below.

Hamilton’s calm reaction to this amazing moment in the wild, that had the potential to be extremely dangerous, serves as a great example of how to behave when faced with a wild bear in the majesty of nature.  Enjoy the video and please share this amazing moment in the wonders of nature.
