Most of us would have soiled ourselves seeing a grizzly bear charging, but after two decades of wildlife filming, Leon Lorenz kept his wits about him on Monday when a mother bear made a beeline for him and his tripod. Shooting in the Robson Valley of British Columbia, Lorenz was filming the mother and a cub when suddenly the adult looked right at him and then charged.
“This is for real,” he thought. “This is … no bluff charge.”
Lorenz grabbed his handgun and fired a warning just as the bear sprang through the trees at him.
