A Hunter Spots a Black Bear but Before He Has a Chance, the Bear Charges Towards Him!

Black Bear Charges Towards Hunter in Fire River, Ontario.

Black bears are abundant in Ontario, Canada with a reported 105,000 black bears in the province alone. To help ensure a sustainable population, the province reinstated the bear hunt from May 1 to June 15 until 2020 and hunters understand the risks of hunting bears.

One hunter, Richard Wesley was hunting with a bow near a logging road in Fire River, Ontario. With a GoPro camera capturing the video, we see a black bear slowly walking towards him. As he waits for the bear to get closer so he can take a shot, it starts charging towards him and you can almost feel the hunter’s fear in his voice.

This incident could have been tragic but thankfully, the bear simply knocked him over and fled. In his video description, Wesley writes, “No wounds except a bruised elbow and ego where the bear threw me down. Genuinely happy that this was a non fatal or tragic outcome. Proving that the black bear is a wild and unpredictable animal. Again so happy with the outcome.”
