For most of us, if we saw a bear, fear takes over and we would either freeze up or take off running. Either action makes us a more vulnerable and easy target of the predator. But here’s a guy who does the unexpected–with great results!

In the video, a Swedish man teaches us the trick. A grizzly bear approaches him; knowing this, the man roars–just exactly like he was a bear! If it weren’t such a serious situation, it would be really funny! After that, the animal quickly runs for cover, back to where he came from.

Now we’re not advocating this as the right reaction when you come upon a bear in the woods, but if you’re out of options, maybe it’s worth a try?

Please watch the short video clip below and share your most frightening animal encounter in the Facebook comments.
