The Inertia

The great outdoors, the places we love to play, never cease to provide viral video. Well, this one is about as real as it gets. Dulé and Evy Krivdich, who are apparently avid hikers, captured this video in Glacier National Park above an area known as Hidden Lake.

From their vantage point, the couple sees what they estimate to be a 500-pound grizzly bear (it looks bigger). Out of the vantage point of the camera is another group of hikers coming down the trail. The pair tried to warn the hikers as best they could. “One yells back, ‘What do we do?’ (We yelled back), ‘Just start making a lot of noise!!! Don’t run,” Dulé wrote in a Facebook post. “But just then, the griz made a bluff charge and we saw people booking it like we’ve never ever seen before in our lives. But I think that it was a case of the bear not knowing people were coming up as the people had no idea but even once they did did the worse thing, they RAN! Thank goodness that it all went well afterwards.”

The reason the group ran? Apparently one of the hikers was carrying a young child. “We complain about them running (in the video) but they had a one-year-old toddler on their back and who knows what was going through their mind,” Kridvich told media after.

Don’t run? That would take some serious chutzpah – especially while carrying a child.
