[VIDEO] Bear Pops Out of Bushes and Swipes Jogger on Public Hiking Trail

[VIDEO] Bear Pops Out of Bushes and Swipes Jogger on Public Hiking Trail

A terrifying video is going viral this week showing the moment a bear ran out of the bushes and took a swipe at a jogger.


The video, which was captured last Saturday, shows a bear try and attack a female jogger who was running on the trails of at Coquitlam Crunch in British Columbia, Canada. The jogger was stunned when the bear emerged out of the bushes out of nowhere as she was enjoying her run.

The footage opens with the black bear approaching the shocked woman and taking a swipe at her leg before jumping back. After a tense few seconds that must have felt like an eternity to the jogger, the bear seemed to lose interest, allowing her to make her escape.

“We started yelling and coming closer to the bear to distract him,” said Sam Abdullah, the hiker who recorded the video.


He added that he tried to catch up to the woman to see if she was alright and to show her the footage, but he was not able to.

“She kept running all the way down,” Abdullah added.

The British Columbia Conservation Service took to Twitter afterward to say that the trails had been temporarily closed, and to urge the public to be careful on them.

Murray Smith, a local conservation officer, told the CBC that officials were in the process of trying to trap the bear after seeing the footage. He added that it was particularly worrying to see the bear touch the woman, as such an encounter is exceedingly rare.

“It appears the bear had little or no fear of the runner,” Smith explained. “It wasn’t like the bear was startled by the runner and reached out and contacted them. In this case, the runner stopped and the bear approached the runner and then the bear hit the person’s leg, so it’s very concerning.”


Officials may have no choice but to euthanize the bear, if they are able to catch it. Smith went on to call for the woman in the video to contact the B.C. Conservation Officer Service, as officials would like to speak to her about what happened.
