Grizzly Bear And Cubs Give Backwards-Walking Hiker a Nerve-Wracking Encounter

After establishing a campsite at Brooks Camp in Katmai National Park in Alaska, a destination known for its population of grizzly bears, Geoffrey Glassner set out on a hike. Minutes later he came face-to-face with a grizzly bear and its cubs.

Glassner pulled out his camera and began recording while walking backward toward camp in a nerve-wracking encounter: It wasn’t known how long the grizzly bears followed Glassner, whose video cut away in the end to the bears walking along the lake going away from him.
