Right around 0:38 is when she starts expecting it to answer.

She discovered no kinship, no understanding, no mercy. She saw only the overwhelming indifference of nature. This blank stare speaks only of a half-bored interest in food.

I hope this footage was found on half-eaten remains.
We can get Werner Herzog to make a documentary about her, call it Grizzly Bitch.

"Come over here, bear."
Umm.. are you absolutely *sure* you want the bear to come near you, lady?
Methinks the woman didn't think her clever plan all the way through.

I think the "Gosh darnit" is what did it for me.

"Why are you breaking my kayak?"
|That guy - 2015-10-02 |
"During a solo kayak trip, intended to go from from Ketchikan, Alaska to Petersburg, Alask, a bear attacked my kayak. This incident occurred outside of a US Forest Service cabin in Berg Bay, Wrangell District, Alaska. I had just carried my tent, food, and all my gear into the cabin to dry while I went on a 4 mile hike that begins just behind the cabin. I heard something outside as I ate my lunch, and well, I never got to go on that hike. This video is taken 5 minutes after the attack began, he continued to gnaw on it for another 5 or 10 after the video ends. Shortly after the bear left and I drug the kayak back to the cabin door step. Then I swam to the S/V anchored in the bay. They did not have their radio on and I feared I would be stranded! The German flagged S/V Caledonia took me and my things to Wrangell but headed home to Ketchikan on the ferry Monday! Thanks for all the support friends!"
When I was stationed in Alaska the residents would joke about the ineffectiveness of bear spray. I still carried it, but I also carried a .357. Fortunately I never had to use either on a bear. One's first weapon against bear attacks it respect and common sense.
Why is she filming this? She's putting herself in a potentially deadly situation with a can of bear spray in one hand and her phone in the other.
I wish she showed us what the kayak looked like when the bear was finished chewing on it. Its hilarious that had to swim to the sail boat. She's lucky an Orca didn't eat her.
Her only way out? There's a sailboat in the background.
Getting eaten by an orca during a 100 yard swim would be some amazing shit luck, especially in a bay.
Yeah I don't get the severity either. She couldn't get back to civilization on the sailboat but she could on the kayak? The kayak was so damaged she couldn't use it to travel the 100 yards to the sailboat?
If the kayak was so life or death, why the fuck are you just leaving it on the ground right next to your camping shit instead of a more secure place?
No, I get the severity. The sailboat is left there. She's alone. She has shelter, but probably not much food and water or heat source.
Also, I'm not sure black bears are total pussies. I think they attack frequently, don't they?
Sailboat is harder to use than a kayak, especially with one person. It could potentially be locked up in some way.
I thought it was hers? This sounded like a private island cabin that she owned.
US Forest Service cabin.
Plus, I think that you can often build a cabin out in the sticks in Alaska, but you can't own it. It's share and share alike.

I was confused when I read about this thing. So she was alone at some remote cabin and this bear showed up? So she's indoors in the video, right? Like she's not just yelling at a bear to leave her kayak alone while it could turn around and eat her...? I mean, I understand being upset about the kayak, as it sounded like it was her only way of getting back from the cabin and she ended up having to swim for help, but still. That kayak could be your skull.
It looks like she's outside, and dangerously close to the bear. I figure she's confident enough in her bear spray. Locals joked that you could identify bear scat, because it was full of bells and smelled like bear spray.
She's right outside the cabin.

She's just freaking out over her shit because he's black.
What, like I'm the only one thinking it?

Did Jackass already try using bearspray on each other?

Squealing at animals in a high-pitched voice that sounds like a dying animal is no way to get them to behave.

It's breaking your kayak because you tried to pepper spray it. Be nicer next time.

I don't think he understands.
