A black bear ran after two joggers in Alberta, Canada earlier this month. One of the men recorded the incident on his phone as the bear followed them along the Macheetawin Trails on June 5.
“Look around for a rock. If he hits, I’m going to hit him in the head,” one of the joggers said in the video.
Eventually the joggers sprinted away as the bear briefly climbed a tree. They made it safely back to their vehicle.
