Forced to fight with a bear to survive. A Japanese mountaineer has captured the terrifying moment he was attacked by a wild bear on camera. The scene took place at the beginning of October, while he was crossing a mountain, on Mount Futago, on the island of Kyūshū, in southern Japan.
Hit to protect yourself
As we can see in this video posted on Twitter, the man kicks the bear, who was probably trying to protect his cub. The animal, tenacious, returned several times to the charge.
