If you go biking on a path through the natural habitat of wild animals, then chances are you're going to encounter said wild animals. It looks like a couple of mountain bikers learned that the hard way, when they narrowly escaped a bear attack on a recent ride through the woods.
As you can see in slow-motion footage captured with a helmet cam (shown above), the riders are going through a slight turn when a damn-big bear appears from the trees and charges toward them at high speed; particularly, right in the direction of the seemingly oblivious leading rider. The bear comes terrifyingly close -- perhaps only a few feet -- from reaching the the person, before giving up on its brief chase and retreating back into the woods. The video lasts only a little more than 30 seconds, but goddamn, is it intense. The terrifying encounter took place in Slovakia, according to a report by Sploid.
