A Florida woman recently filmed her close encounter with a black bear, and even though these creatures are usually pretty docile, the footage is still harrowing.
Teliece Sander of Seminole County, Florida, was sitting in her driveway and playing games on her phone when she looked up and realized that a massive bear was approaching. Having heard that you should keep calm at all costs in these situations, she didn’t panic and sat there quietly, taking a picture of the large beast, which she then sent to her son. To the attachment, she added the words “help me.”
As the bear got closer, she realized that it seemed quite tame, so she did something that few people would ever have the courage to do. She caught the entire encounter on film.
