In a ski resort in Romania, a bear chased a skier who was descending the slope.
Video posted on social networks of eyewitnesses, reports digi24.ro.
The incident occurred on Saturday in the popular resort town of Predeal. The video shows a skier going down the slope, followed by a small bear running downhill.
It is not known if the skier saw the bear behind him, but the animal was spotted by people who were on the chairlift. They started screaming to warn the skier.
Fortunately, the guy escaped safely after his unexpected encounter with the animal. A police spokesman said the hiker did the right thing when he dropped his backpack at one point, and the bear got busy inspecting the item, making the danger averted.
Police and rescuers said they received three calls during the day about the presence of a bear near the slopes.
Last week, a bear cub was seen crossing the area near the elevator area, where there were tourists. Now the option of moving the animal is being considered.
