Scary Video Shows Grizzly Charging Near Hikers in Glacier
Over the weekend, Regina Louisa was hiking in Glacier National Park. On Saturday evening at around 6:30 p.m. on the Hidden Lake Overlook Trail. That's when a young grizzly came bursting out of the trees. Fortunately, the grizzly wasn't interested in humans.
According to a post on Facebook, Louisa said;
He came charging fast, but was not interested in people at all. He was after multiple mountain goats.
The video was recently shared by NBC Montana. Honestly, what would you do in this situation?
According to the Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks, here are ways to stay safe in bear country.
- Inquire about recent bear activity in the area.
- Carry and know how to use bear spray for emergencies.
- Let someone know where you are going and when you plan to return.
- Travel in groups of three or more people whenever possible and plan to be out in the daylight hours.
- Stay on trails or rural roads.
- Watch for signs of bears such as bear scat, diggings, torn-up logs and turned over rocks, and partly consumed animal carcasses.
- Keep children close.
- Make your presence known by talking, singing, carrying a bell, or other means, especially when near streams or in thick forest where visibility is low. This can be the key to avoiding encounters. Most bears will avoid humans when they know humans are present.
- Use caution in areas like berry patches where bears occur.
- Don't approach a bear; respect their space and move off.
