That looked kind of like the pet bear my friends gave me in my dream last night, which was a little unnerving to look at but nice to hug until he bit my tongue.

THAT is the way the world is SUPPOSED to work, but almost never does. Which is what makes it awesome.

Hee hee, I find this really funny! The bear looks so ashamed, so embarrassed.

A question to you people in bearland: could that have ended differently? To a person like me who has no experience with bears that seemed rather threatening...

Make a lot of noise and you can usually shoo them away; it doesn't look like wintertime so the bear probably isn't desperate enough for food to be more than curious. Also the remarkably calm cameraman may have been up there with a weapon. There's no accompanying story but that looks like a fine place to hunt deer from, in which case if things got hairy the hunter could fire his weapon, either for effect or to kill. It's amazing to me how quietly the guy speaks, and how it seems like the loudest sound for miles around.

I'm not really in bearland here in Queens but that looks a lot like the animal that came up from behind and surprised me from about 5 feet away when I was cooking dinner by Kaaterskill Falls. Those heads look a lot bigger the closer you get.

I live in bear country, and the first rule of bear country is if the bear wants you, he's going to get you. The good news is, the bear rarely wants you. Usually they are just curious, more often trying to avoid you. He might have smelled something the hunter had (deer lure? food?). As long as there are no cubs or food involved, they will usually amble on their way. I've been this close to a brown bear as a kid (it wandered into our campsite) and this was pretty much what it did as well. "Oh! Sorry,didn't know this stall was occupied!" *cue chubby bear walking away tuba music*
