Two men napping on the beach are given one heck of a wake-up call.
Two fishermen sleeping along the Pacific Ocean were rudely interrupted when a bear cub wandered up to them and stepped on one of the men’s foot.
Video of the scary but—as it turned out—harmless encounter was captured Friday by Ilya Nikolsky in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Russia.
Nikolsky said that she and her mother and a friend were having tea along the shoreline when they spotted what looked like a big dog, but it ended up being a small bear.
“We started shouting to the fishermen to wake up, but because of the surf of the ocean we could not be heard,” Nikolsky said. “We were afraid that the bear was coming for the fishermen, but fortunately the bear was small.”
When the bear cub stepped on the man, he immediately jumped up, scaring off the bear. He yelled and woke up his friend, who also jumped up upon seeing the bear.
