Watch: A Man Stands His Ground And Slaps A Bear… And He’s Still Around To Tell Us About It.

An incredible video from the Thug Life Channel has captured the extraordinary scene of a man and a bear exchange slaps and the bear backs down, leaving the human standing in one piece.

The man in the video is Charlie Vandergaw, who Wikipedia says “tried to create an environment with arguable success where bears can coexist with humans as closely as possible” and describes as:

[A]n elderly man who has lived in Alaska for several decades and illegally fed grizzly and black bears on his property for many of those years. The documentary [Stranger Among Bears]was popularly aired on the cable TV station Animal Planet.
