For Canadian hunter Richard Wesley, hunting on an old logging road quickly turned from peaceful to downright scary – and it all happened in the blink of an eye. Wesley was filming a bow-hunting trip and received a lot more exciting coverage than he expected after a bear charged and tackled him. Luckily, the hunter walked away from the ordeal nearly unharmed.
Richard posted on his Youtube channel:
“I AM SO HAPPY AFTER THIS CONFRONTATION WITH A BLACK BEAR DURING OUR SPRING HUNT. 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.”
Seriously, the guy walked away with minimal wounds. It’s time to be thanking Lady Luck, not to be saying out ‘happy’ he is about the outcome. But to each their own. What do you think about this situation Radasser’s?
