Excellent Demonstration Of What To Do In A Black Bear Encounter


Bruce Allan and Greg Armour recently managed to document their encounter with a Black Bear on video while out running on the Matcheetawin Trails in Fort McMurray this past June 5th. Quick thinking, the men made all the right moves in their many attempts to evade and discourage the bear.

Finally managing to get back to their vehicle, Allen was able to alert Fish and Wildlife of what had just transpired. Both men came away from the incident unharmed and Chandra Lye of CTV Edmonton published an excellent story yesterday, including additional video and an interview.
