Man, this pup doesn’t know any better, but he looks like he has a death wish… and biggest balls in the animal kingdom.
It’s no secret that a bear has the potential to quite easily rip you to shreds if given the chance, especially if it’s a mama bear that feels like you may be a threat to her cubs.
But even though that may mean a number of us are terrified to get too close to a bear, that doesn’t mean a dog is…
Just like this one from Romania.
The dog and its owner went for a walk in the mountains, when a brown bear made its way to the roadside.
Unfazed, the dog makes its way over to the bear, getting as close as only a couple of feet away, just staring it down and barking ferociously enough to hopefully scare the bear away. While brown bears generally don’t tend to spook as easily as black bears, the only hope for this pup is that the bear thinks better of ripping it to shreds.
Sure enough, after it lunged at the dog with a false charge, and saw that the dog was going to continue to stand its ground, the bear didn’t want any part of the good boy and slowly backed away.
But my only question is… where is the owner in all of this? He said he was just going for a hike in the mountains, but that might be the most casual reaction to a near-death experience that I’ve ever seen. Near-death for the dog, not him…
However, the brown bear makes up 60% of the bear population in Romania, and have been responsible for several attacks on humans as more and more people continue to settle in the Carpathian Mountains.
So who knows, maybe this doggo saved its owner from being a victim in one of these attacks.
Three Young Wolves Corner Little Dog Who Makes Surprising Escape
Wolves man… watching them hunt is an incredible experience.
Unfortunately for this pup, he was on the wrong side of it.
Filmed in Italy, by Pablo Forconi, we can see the moment this pack of wolves snap into action. Calculated, precise… the leader gives the signal and they go charging forward, a three-headed nightmare for this poor doggo.
They pin him down up against the fence, in deep snow… he’s outmanned and overmatched.
One of these wolves could handle this by himself, let alone three of them. As the dog attempt to flee, they cut him off like a linebacker seals off the edge.
He makes a quick dash along the fence, but his speed is no match for the wolves.
With the wolves nipping at his heels, death is all but certain at this point. But out of nowhere, doggo pops through a hole in the fence like a damn ninja, and narrowly escapes in the nick of time.
According to our photographer, it was the inexperience of the wolves that might have cost them their lunch.
“Up until 3 years ago, seeing or photographing wolves was something quite rare. Now instead we are invaded by photos and videos of wolves standing still or walking, but seeing a scene of predation does not happen every day.
A few months ago I happened to watch some wolves chasing the deer (but I could not film them) and now three young wolves, less than a year old, trying to prey on a small dog, biting it twice.
Their lack of experience and the low power of the bite have been to the advantage of the dog that this time managed to escape by jumping into a hole in the fence.
The dog was saved and today he was in the enclosure along with goats and other pets and in those few minutes that I observed him he killed a little chicken under the eyes of the owner who has not had time to save her.”
Doggo evades the wolves, but kills a chicken… the circle of life.
Yellowstone Driver Comes Upon Massive Wolf Wandering At Night
No matter what time of day you go, what time of year… you’re always bound to see something incredible. Whether it’s bear, elk, wolves, or bison, you’re getting a front row seat to the best that American wildlife has to offer.
Siddharth Gandhi was able to catch an incredible moment on video (in 2017) when a massive grey wolf wandered onto a two lane road in Lamar Valley at Yellowstone National Park. His video racked up over 11M views to date.
This thing is a BEAST… I mean, it looks like a dire wolf straight out of Game of Thrones.
Equally as majestic as it is terrifying.
Check it out up close… nature is a beautiful thing.
