Suddenly the bear rushes towards him, forcing Richard Wesley to try and scare the wild beast off by making loud noises
Remember 61-year-old Rick Nelson?
He’s that guy who had a fistfight with a huge black bear after he was attacked by the animal while walking his dog. He walked away with several scratches on his face and shoulder from the terrifying incident.
Now another ‘man versus bear’ story has recently been making rounds on the interwebs and, like Nelson’s experience, it also happened in Ontario, Canada.
It was a typical day for hunter Richard Westley when, all of a sudden, he saw a large bear wandering around the area. He took his camera and started filming. Not long after that, the animal started moving towards his direction.
The black bear began attacking Wesley
The hunter tried to scare the animal away with a loud voice and with his bow but to no avail.
Eventually, he was left without a choice and punched the animal right in the snout, acting “on pure instinct,” as the Rare website described it.
