Bear Safety Video: Unintentionally Hilarious, Possibly Useful Tips

by at . Comments

This local news segment offers the bear necessities when it comes to warding off a giant ursine creature in the woods. Or any other living thing for that matter.

Following a story about a man who faced down a bear, reporter Julie Tremmel of Providence, R.I.'s local NBC affiliate WJAR did a segment on bear safety.

Her intentions were no doubt good, but the end result was at least a solid 7 or 8 on the unintentionally comedy meter. Watch below and see for yourself:

So if you meet a bear in the woods, just make like Tremmel. Dart your eyes wildly, side to side, and wave your hands in the air like you just don't care!

Then curl up in the dirt as the confused animal laughs, concludes it probably isn't worth the trouble, shakes his head and ambles back into the forest.
