The man’s poise and ability to remain calm and move slow likely prevented the bear’s predatory instincts from being sparked. Had he panicked and ran away, it could have very well caused the bear to chase him down.
A bear chase is just what happened in another video however, captured in Montana, where a mountain biker cruising down the slopes caught the attention of another black bear who proceeded to follow behind at full speed.
“A quick reminder that Montana is not Disney Land… Black bear chasing a downhill mountain biker in Whitefish.”
And it looks like that bruin meant business.
Racing a bear down a mountain on a bike? Gonna be a no from me dawg…
