Housemates chased by 3 Bears in their House
In August 2016, two housemates were chased by 3 bears in their house! The terrifying moment happened in Mammoth Lakes in California, on a quiet Wednesday afternoon. Rodney came from work late at night while his friend was sleeping with the house doors largely open. When he got into the kitchen he found a mother bear with her 2 babies searching for food.
The footage starts with Rodney yelling at his friend ‘We have a bear inside of our house’, as he was trying to go upstairs and hide. Suddenly the bear lets out a ferocious growl and you can see him following Rodney on the stairs. Rodney and his housemate got into a room, locked it and stood there for about an hour waiting for the bears to leave.
Wild animals are dangerous no matter the circumstances. If you accidentally encounter an aggressive bear you need to stand your ground and prepare to use your deterrent. You need to show the bear that you are bigger than him, so try to make a step or two toward the bear while treating him with something handy like pole or bear spray.
What is more important, stay safe and try not to go in places that you can encounter wild, dangerous animals. Share this article with your friends and enjoy it!
