Bears are ones of the deadliest predators on Earth, and it’s best not to face one. Although such encounters do happen when hiking in National Parks. Fortunately there are rules people can follow to minimize the danger of an attack. For example: don’t make any sudden movements, as this can trigger a chase response in the animal. Climbing a tree is also a bad idea. If the bear is attacking then it’s time to use the bear pepper spray.

Just some advice from ranger’s at National Parks. But what should you do when you encounter a bear in your home or cabin? That is a totally different situation. Although not as common as bear encounters in the wild, this freak situation can occur. Take a look at this bear who decided to hang out in a mud room, and how the occupants respond:

As you can see everything turned out well. The bear ran back into the wild and nobody got injured. I’ve got just one question: Why does the dangerous situation get handled by the young woman instead of the man holding the camera? 😉
