Bear and two cubs chasing a hiker in Alaska
Bears following hiker on a trail

A man camping in Alaska had an extremely close encounter with a huge grizzly bear and her two cubs on a trail. The clip starts with the man nervously describing the scene as two bear cubs and a mother bear are walking towards him on a trail in Katmai National Park in Alaska. "I am walking backwards on the trail backward to the camp, the man says calmly. "The mom and the cubs keep following me and are walking at least as fast as I am." "What I don't want to do as I'm walking backwards is stumble," the man admits in the clip. Understanding the severity of the situation and possible deadly outcomes, the man starts pleading with the animals. "Come on, guys," the man says, "give me a break." Eventually, the man and the cubs made it back to camp, and the animals can be seen walking away from the man at the edge of a body of water. Though the interaction went about as smoothy as one could expect with a grizzly and her cubs chasing you on a trail, the credit should go to the man, who handled the situation properly. He kept himself calm, and walked away from the bears with a watchful eye.
