Australian Couple Films Encounter With Grizzly While Hiking In Canada

July 9, 2018

A couple from Australia filmed an amazing encounter with a grizzly bear while hiking in Canada.

Jessica Boshoff and husband Dale Boshoff were just a few minutes into the hike when they came upon the bear on the trailhead.

"Jordan's shoelace came undone so we stopped and Dale looked up and saw the bear," Jessica told CBC News. "He sort of looked at it and he was like, 'What is that? It's a bear,' then he said, 'No, surely it can't be a bear,' and it took a couple of seconds for him to process. Then he just said 'Guys,' and I could tell in his voice that he was serious, so we looked up and saw the bear right in front of us, and then got behind [Dale] because he had the bear spray."

They moved slowly away from the bear to give it some space and it was at that point Dale pulled out his phone and started recording.

"Awesome but scary at the same time," he wrote on YouTube. "He was walking towards us for about 40 seconds before I started recording."
