Reporter Demonstrates How to Fend Off a Bear Attack, Hilarity Ensues

Reporter Demonstrates How to Fend Off a Bear Attack, Hilarity Ensues

One of the most frightening encounters any hunter can experience in the field is coming face to face with a big, hungry, perturbed bear. Whether it's a black bear or a monster grizzly, a big bruin can put a hurtin' on a hunter in a matter of seconds — nothing says, "That's all folks," like a pair of massive jaws treating your skull like a jawbreaker.

So in an effort to teach viewers how to fend off a bear attack, reporter Julie Tremmel of WJAR in Providence, R.I., acted out a few common bear defense tactics. The results are Internet gold.

Wow. We're not sure which is better: her wide-eyed stare, or the shouting and throwing shoes. Kudos to Tremmel for going through with this piece of hard-hitting journalism, but next time, an interview with the local game warden may just as well do the trick.
