Grizzly Bear Hangs Out
By - Limitless-Sight007
Whole lotta nope here. Even the birds split.
Honestly this is probably the best reaction he could have had. Bears are very quick to react and read energy, staying calm saved this person's life.
Yes, I agree.
What an experience, though! Of course I know how dangerous bears are, but have to add this bear's face looks more like a child's teddy bear than any bear I've ever seen.
His name is Ted.
That’s because he is stuffed full of salmon, this is at the height of the salmon run and if the camera panned to the right you’d see about 15 more grizzlies fishing in the river. This was taken in Alaska a few years back.
The camera did pan to the the right, showing several grizzlies in the river.
Oh hey you’re right! I assumed this was one of the shorter videos, my bad.
Harmless. Just thought I’d let you know in case you were disappointed by not enough grizzly footage.
No thanks I choose life.
Coupled with the fact that there was no threat to cubs or food supply. That bear just gorged on fishies. He just wants to bro down with a beer and take a nap next to this new homie.
Yea that's a situation that can go from r/aww to r/ahh real quick.
Right. Aww shit.
The birds were like oh hell naw, I don’t want to see how this ends😂
Even the grass split
Lol yeah till he get hungry or a bee stings his pecker
Even crazier there's like 30 more bears below that dude in the river.
Looks to be a wildlife photographer, probably thought he was far enough away.
Honestly that many in the river means food in plentiful down there. Why attack a larger animal that will take more energy and can hurt you went there's a buffett 30 yards away?
The buffet you describe is 5 lbs fish, why not get a 180 lb dude?
Guy was as lucky as could be that these bears were already well fed, grizzlies are *extremely dangerous*
This isn’t a grizzly - it’s a coastal brown bear in McNeil river. This is a very unique place where no one has ever been injured by a bear.
Why the down votes? Queue upcoming reddit down votes for my down vote comment
It's quite known that bears are unlikely to attack humans during salmon season
Isn't that what NoConsideration said though? Guy was lucky bears were well fed by salmon already, else the grizzly would have gone for the guy?
> why not get a 180 lb dude?
The first part of their comment is the issue not the second part.
They would always prefer 5lbs of fish that they naturally are very good at catching over dealing with killing and eating a human.
But the disagreement is that everyone else is saying the bear, if hungry, would rather go for salmon than a human if both available.
“Hey man, my wife wanted to make sure you’re not trying to hunt us… I know you’re not, but I told her i’d check, and well, here I am. The worlds changed, you know? Hard to blame her for being nervous these days. Anyways, stay outta trouble. I’ll come check on you in a couple hours”
…when I’m m hungry”
"Feeling cute, might eat you later."
That's not aww, that's terrifying.
What was the rhyme for different bear species and how to act if you meet one? "If it's brown, lay the fuck down, and if it's black get the fuck back"?
“If it’s brown, lie down.
If it’s black, fight back.”
And don’t forget, “If it’s white, say goodnight.”
Legit. If a polar bear decides your time is up, your time is up.
Not if I stay the hell out of the arctic, thank you very much.
But if you stay out of the Arctic any polar bear you ran into will happen when you least expect it, at least if you were in the Arctic you'd be looking out for them.
That's cause they're hopped up on coke all the time.
For the most part if a grizzly decides your time is up, it's up as well. There's only a handful of people that have survived grizzly attacks and they were not pretty.
I had been assuming the person taking the video was in a car the whole time, but holy sh*t they were just sitting there, with 30 more of them down the hill!
Well fed bears are the best bears :)
>with 30 more of them down the hill!
After seeing your comment I had to go back and confirm as I did not see them my first viewing
I thought they were dear or something at first lol
“Hey guys I checked it out. The food is not a runner. We can save it for later.”
Bears look so fluffy. I just wanna go and rub their little ears and faces, but I also like being alive sooooooo
Ever seen a pic of one without fur?
Oh my god, I just googled it and I HATE it.
lolz so funny I know the picture
Tell us about your rabbits!
Ok! So, I am a breeder and seller of purebred mini lops. I own my own business. I currently have 15 rabbits, 7 of which are 6 week old babies. I am also a part of the ARBA, which promotes the responsible breeding and selling of rabbits and cavy.
My rabbits are...
Charlie Chaplin, a blue mini lop. He is a big boy who loves food. (sometimes he has anger issues.)
Taffy, a chinchilla mini lop. She is a HUGE diva and always acts like a little queen.
Truffles, a Chestnut mini lop. She's very sweet and kind. Taffy is her sister.
Mocha, a broken chestnut aguti mini lop. She's very chunky and is pretty shy.
Halley's Comet, a lilac mini lop. He's a HUGE butthole and likes to pee on everything, including himself. He's constantly gross.
Cuppa Joe, a siamese sable mini lop. He's been stuck in molt for 3 months. He's nice, but nothing really exciting about his personality.
Alice, my "impulse buy" rabbit. He's a lionhead-dutch mix and he looks like he has a handlebar mustache. He also has Segmental heterochromia (heterochromia iridium).
Poppy, my brokem chinchilla mini lop. She currently has kids. Usually she is a diva, but she's been nice over pregnancy and baby-taking-care-of.
I've seen a black bear with mange at a petting zoo. Looked like a person in a really poorly made brown leather gimp suit.
Gimpy The Bear. Only YOU can prevent forest fires.
My thought exactly. So flipper cute and huggable
They're ancestors of dogs, are they not?
No. I believe they are somewhat closely related to pigs.(edit - this is incorrect)
A dog did not mutate into a bear. That isn't really how speciation works. Even saying dogs descended from wolves, isn't quite right, dogs descended from an ancestor of wolves, those wolves are almost certainly different than wolves you would find today.
Bears and dogs are both in the same suborder, Caniformia, along with seals, raccoons, and badgers. The other suborder, Feliformia, include cats, ferrets, hyenas, meerkats, and binturongs.
Pigs are even-toed ungulates.
And is further complicated by the fact that Dogs and Wolves have mixed, much like Homo Sapiens and Homo Neanderthalensis have mixed.
Well that was anxiety-inducing from start to finish
Hey eh eh eh eh eh eh hey.
>I'm in danger! :)
Not his first rodeo with *Ursus horribilis*.
Looks so cute but dangerous!
I would have started walking away at first sight of that apex predator
I know! Humans are terrifying...
Ah the ol reddit didgeridoo
The bear looks tried and sleepy.
Watch the Timothy Treadwell documentary.
I was going to write that. It’s titled Grizzly Man.
Guy was an idiot that got himself and his gf eaten by a Bear cause he thought they were harmless.
The camera was rolling when it happened to. You can find the audio leaked on YouTube. I dont recommend listening to it. I did like a year ago and I still regret it to this day.
Pretty sure the audio on youtube is mostly faked. The director said most of the audio is pretty quiet I think.
Audio online is 100% fake. Only one person is in possession of the tape, there are no duplicates and it was never digitized. I know the family of the girlfriend closely.
Keri Russell went to my video store. So I'm not sweatin it either.
Lucky man! ;) Just kind of annoying seeing the YouTube audio brought up all the time when it's fake. Wouldn't you be if people kept saying she never went to your store?!
So uhm, are you guys going to be here long, this is my favorite spot...
“It’s been rough for me man. The wife left me for bigger grizzly after I lost weight, the salmon ain’t as good as it was, and I’m here coming to you to lend me an ear.”
I’d probably get killed trying to be it’s friend
Lol. Me too
That would be truly terrifying. But, there's nothing that guy can do - he sure as hell wouldn't be able to out run that bear if the situation turned ugly. 😳😬
"thank goodness I wore my brown pants today..."
it looks like a bear wearing bear suite?
The guys huge balls must have scared the bear away.
How does he walk with balls that big?
IDK, but I will never be seen doing this in this life or the next.
Bear knew to walk away when it realised the guy was a Scouser...
I seriously thought he’d sit in the chair and help him self to a bud
A well-fed bear isn't as much of a threat as you might think. Still...I'd be shitting myself being that close. Godamn it's a beautiful creature, though. How could nature create something so cuddly and so deadly?
They are beautiful animals though
Bear: “nah bro, im tellin you, humans go ‘ay ay ay ay ay”
That a huge set of balls on OP for just sitting there
This is McNeil river in Alaska, I have definitely eaten lunch beside this bear,
His gun was too far away.
Just aswell this guy has balls of steel rather than balls of salmon or he’d dead.
Why didn’t you scream and run away?
GRIZZLY BEAR ISN’T HUNGRY
I think buddy is in the bear’s favourite spot and the bear was just feeling him out. Like when a guy is really close to your fishing spot or at your favourite bar seat even though others are open. You don’t want to be rude but you also want to get just close enough to drop the hint.
This is the kind of shit on /aww that eventually ends in dead bears.
Doesn't this guy and his girlfriend eventually get eaten by these bears?
Different guy I believe.
This wasn’t taken by Timothy Treadwell. He was killed in 2003
I was sure you brought that chair for your fellow photographer🧸
More like aww SHIT! RUN!
Yikes but also what an experience...
Give him a beer
Look for the bare necessities 🐻baloo
Waiting for dinner to be served.
Oh my got! The last few sec of that video gave me a startle. 😂
Big bear takin a break. Its an unbearable life sometimes, and you just gotta sit and enjoy nature from time to time
Absolutely not. This thing is massive
Why are you there?
why does this bear look so fake though?
It's actually two black bears in a brown bear suit
Here I am an hour into wedding crashers and all of a sudden this...
I would never do anything of the sort. Hey ey ey ey. LOL.
Grizzly Man taught me well.
What i say when i get a test back that i know i didnt study enough for
Probably left after smelling all the shit
I would’ve been too scared lol
Der Bär hat ihm nur unmissverständlich mitgeteilt, wo er sich befindet und wer das sagen hat.
Watching the wind direction, the pause in breeze, and how the bear was scenting made me dizzy. Amazing how calm the photographer remained! Such a magnificent wild bear!
He’s beautiful and all but I think I just shat myself...lol. Seriously though, buddy shouldn’t be so casual about this....hasn’t he ever heard about that wild photographer guy ( sorry I can’t recall his name) who lived for years in the wild...he was ripped apart one day. They call them wild for a reason....crazy mofo!!
Any Forest Rangers wanna give us the SOP for this situation?
What do you mean fucking 'aww' should be 'AAARRGHJgHGH!!!!'
Anyone catch the last few frames where there are like 20+ bears in the river in front of the photographer?!?
I would be TERRIFIED!
Howd you have the balls to sit there that whole time?
Because when you run you're prey
So Yogi Bear is real.
Hope you wore your brown pants. But also his ears look so fuzzy and pettable!
That's not aww that's terrifying
Last few second show’s he was watching several others as well.
And then later that night the bear came back and ate them all. The end.
You run and when (not if) it catches you, shit your pants - and the smell will cause it to lose interest.
This is the cutest scariest thing I have ever seen.
He was probably still full from eating the camper just up the way.
Doesn't this belong in "AHH" rather than "aww"?
Ahhh the ol Canadian warning ⛔️ “eh eh eh eh eh” works every time
I want to fight a bear
This is why you need extra set of britches in bear country.
Whoa nice ending
Just watched The Revenant today. Fuck that.
I prob would have died trying to give em a hug...
Do bears even attack humans that consistently? I know if you smell like food or if they’re hungry enough. They just seem like big Forrest doggos.
He looks so cute 🥺
I was worried for the photographer for a minute, then the camera pans over to see 12+ bears all hanging out at the salmon spot, I am no longer nervous as he/she has accepted their fate.
This turned from r/aww to r/ahh
\*in 2024\* "We don't know why they went missing, he was just out filming bears again."
“Nice day huh”
25 yards to the right, all the god damn bears.
Pants officially shat.
How wet *were* your pants? 🤔
So many great comments! 🤣 glad the photographer wasn't hurt.
I would be glad i'd have worn the brown pants on that trip, such a powerful beast.
There should probably be a "Holy Fucking Shit" subreddit.
He’d have stayed if you offered him a beer.
I don’t know man, this really sends the wrong message to stupid people………………..
Oh my freaking god, what was that bear doing? I’d have lost my cool for sure.
Isn’t this how people die?
"Hey how's it going human, nice day isn't it?"
"So uhhh so you catch anything today?"
"Well fine, I was just trying to make conversation, screw you sir. Good day!"
Why pull up a chair where bears are feeding?
You have chosen... poorly.
“Only the penitent man shall pass!"
More like awwww crap!
No thanks… he would smell my fear and make me dinner… NO WAY!
The fact that he kinda freaked out at the end with the “hey, hey heys”solidified the dumbassedness of this. Just like that documentary about the guy who brought his GF to Alaska and both were eaten… by Grizzlies…Have fun!!!
I was pretty sure the bear was going to sit in the chair.
The suspense is unbearable.
Must’ve had a belly full of salmon. That camera guy is really playing it close. Gun so close but still so far away.
Aren’t these danger cuddles the nastiest of the bears? Or was it polar? Either way, no sir.
What a lazy ass bear!:-)
Terrifying as hell. Can you imagine if the bear prefers a quiet meal and is going to wait you out, gotta sleep sometime.....
Bear: I am gonna chill right here. Now back to work.. get me those fishes
Someone has balls of steel.
One lucky and insane cameraman!
Hey, you got a nice set up here, guy. Mind if I join you for awhile?
I have no idea how you stayed that calm and cool. It's like you were just in tune at that moment.
I want to be that relaxed in life 😌❤
Cute cuddly bug bear 🐻 so cute
Man i bet the fisherman's heart rate was WAY WAY UP. Don't look my way, don't look my way.
Just stopping in to see if you caught anything …. 🎣. Gotta pay the toll…..
Yesterday googled the grizzly population of the US:
1400 bears in the contiguous US. 1400.
Another 30k in Alaska, but that contiguous number broke my heart.
Am from Alaska. Please take some of our grizzly bears if it makes you feel better. I am sick of bear proofing everything.
This dude gets eaten at the watering hole. Grizzly bears are pretty docile... other animals like humans aren't
So what happens that gets him eaten? Your comment about them being docile makes me think something weird went down.
He and his gf had left to fly home because it was that time of year that is dangerous for humans to be in Grizzly territory. Right before they hibernate, when they are trying to eat as much as possible. There was a conflict at the airport and he said F this, we’re going back.
Well, there was an older, grumpy bear that he had noticed a few times over the time he was out there and that bear noticed them the night before they were being picked up. It attacked him first then came back for the gf. They had their video camera in the tent and it recorded the audio of the attacks.
I wish bears weren’t so fucking dangerous. That’s an impressive animal who probably just wants to chill, but everyone looks at them in fear.
That animal does not always want to chill lmao. You look at that animal in fear because if it has a temper tantrum or is starving hungry, it doesn't give a wild fuck about you and can overpower you in seconds.
Eaten back alive.
That guy is dead since a few years right? Bear attacked him, most of people living close by wild animals just end up getting eaten.
Aww poor thing looks exhausted and old…didn’t seem to have much in the way of big incisors when it yawned.
