One thing I have to admit is I’m terribly afraid of bears. It’s a true fear of mine when I’m hiking in the woods or camping. It’s always in the back of my mind that I just might encounter one. That’s why this heart-pounding footage of a large brown bear chasing a mountain biker gave me a case of the “dizzies.”
YouTuber Dusan Vinžík caught this intense helmet cam footage as he was following his friend down a mountain. This all happened at the Malinô Brdo in Slovakia just a few days ago.
I’m not entirely sure why they stopped at the end—I would peddled like a bat of out of hell—but according to Mashable, they may have stopped because the trail had a switchback, “which would have put the bikers right in the path of the bear after it cut off trail.”
Either way, this is some terrifying footage.
