Angry Bear Starts Chasing Mountain Bikers In Frightening Helmet Cam Footage

When YouTuber Dusan Vinžík was mountain biking in the woods with his buddy, the man couldn’t believe his eyes when an aggressive looking bear appeared out of nowhere and started chasing his friend. All of this happened in Malinô Brdo in Slovakia. Vinžík started screaming his lungs out to alert his buddy of the danger.

Luckily, the bear disappeared after cutting off the trail. We also see that the biker whom the animal was after stops, which was probably a good thing as the path in front of him had a switchback and could have lead him to the bear.

It’s not clear what made the beast run away – perhaps it was Vinžík’s screams that frightened the animal. One thing for sure, it was a ride to remember!

The bear is not attacking the riders. The bear is spooked by the noise and/or speed of the riders - probably didn't see them coming - and is trying to escape. The bear unfortunately chose a bad direction and ends up running towards the trail but you can see that it is turning to the right as it realizes the mistake. BP, this is fake sensational and clickbait news. A bear is a wild animal, with wild animal reactions. That bear had no intention of attacking anyone and definitely was not going to eat that rider. Both riders stop very shortly after the incident, if the bear had truly been charging, they would not have - trust me, I've lived around bears for many years. The bear wanted to go away.

No. He's charging them. Bears are about intimidating things that scare them, and if they don't manage to do that, they'll do their best to kill you. With their bad eyesight, everything they can't identify immediately is a potential threat. Having been way too close to several over the course of my life, I can tell you that you do NOT want to be noticed by them.

To paraphrase a famous line from an old movie, "Bike, don't fail me now!"
