Bear Confronts Swedish Man Who Quickly Scares It Away Like A Boss

When confronted by a giant bear, most sane people would run away or call for help.

Ralph Persson, however, opted instead to stand his ground and managed to actually scare the gigantic animal away all by himself.

It turns out the trick is to spread your arms and produce the kind of roar you might make if you got your tender parts stuck in your zipper.

Persson was out training his new hunting dog in Jamtland when the brown bear showed up out of the woods.


Speaking to Hela Halsingland, he explained that he took his inspiration for the bear scaring technique from birds:


I have seen in the past how even cranes have chased bears by folding up their wings.

So, basically, it’s not just this guy who’s braver than us, but small birds too. Nice…

W.T. Sherman is my favorite General. After all he did order Atlanta to be burned to the ground.

Wow! Sorta' like the ol' punch-a-shark-in-the-nose trick but without losing an arm, . Pretty impressive.

It would have interesting to see what happens between man and bear after the 22 seconds of video footage.

I would consider that gentleman lucky not to have been mauled by that bear.

But its not at all. What the speaker is saying in the background is that the man is out to get his hunting dog (moose hunting) that has started trailing a bear instead of moose. Its late in the fall and the bear should really be hibernating by then.

A quick thinker atleast.

The bear population is becoming a problem in northern Sweden. It has grown so big that they are getting closer and closer to towns. A lot of bears are not afraid of humans as they used to be so thy rummage through garbage and stuff to find things to eat.

The Bears in Sweden might think the human population has become a problem.

That is a pretty good way of looking at things. If you look at it from a purely biological standpoint we could eliminate 99,9% of the human population and we would still have all the numbers and diversity needed to survive as a species.
