Nishanto vs. The Bear

10/16/2012

This bear learned the hard way: don't mess with Nishanto.

 

I love this video because it demonstrates how black bears are not marauding, aggressive people-killers and in fact can quite closely live near people without any trouble.  Black bears are typically timid and will run away from humans.

That said, when bears come calling this close to human homes, they do need to be taught that contact with people is not a good thing.  I wonder if Nishanto is available for hire?

Read more about what happens when large predators show up in people's backyards from National Wildlife magazine.
