Ever thought about what you'd do if you happened to find yourself having a face-off with a bear? This woman found herself in that sticky situation and it was caught on camera:
The anonymous lady was descending from the popular Coquitlam Crunch trail in British Columbia, Canada, when a bear approached her and swiped at her leg on 29 August.
The hiker kept remarkably calm as the bear got all too close - a little calmer than many would that's for sure.
Sam Abdullah caught the whole video and posted it on YouTube. Abdullah explained how he was walking up the trail when he saw the bear coming out of the bushes.
He said: "I started filming when a girl was running down from the crunch and ended up in front of the bear."
The footage shows the animal emerging from the bushes and approaching the runner, who remains very still, before it swats her leg.
He added: "We started yelling and coming closer to the bear to distract him."
Eventually the jogger was able to run away to safety. The British Columbia Conservation Service has temporarily shut down the trail as they attempt to trap the bear.
The conservation service urged the public to 'be vigilant, take safety precautions' and 'report any bear sightings in the area'.
Earlier this year, a little boy showed us all what to do in these sort of situations when he was hiking with his family in the Sporminore municipality in Trentino, Italy, when he came across a wild brown bear.
You can watch the clip here, but the 12-year-old manages to remain calm as his mum and her boyfriend tell him not to panic. He nervously walks down the hill as the animal stands metres behind him.
Following the instructions from his family, the boy walks towards them, making as little movement as possible. As the youngster turns to check on the bear, it stands on its hind legs and the boy calls for his mum before the animal turns its attention to a nearby bush.
The video was posted on to Twitter and people have praised the boy for his bravery. One wrote: "Of course seeing it for the first time and so big maybe I would still be running... congratulations for the calm."
Another added: "Really congratulations to Alessandro and to you for the calm. I fear that 'normal', therefore instinctive, behavior would have compromised everything."
