All too often, bears who wander into areas inhabited by humans are simply killed outright, a knee-jerk reaction that fails to honor their basic right to life. But fortunately, there are some folks who know that they needn't resort to violence when dealing with these easily spooked animals.
Video has emerged showing one fearless (and unwisely overzealous) man's much more humane approach to handling a wayward brown bear. The animal, whose size is aptly described as "big ass," had taken up a cozy spot beneath a porch and was less than eager to give up his spot - but his human challenger refused to back down.
"I got pepper spray, not that it's a big can," says the man, choosing to resolve the situation with words instead.
