I had a close call with a bear almost a year ago in the back country of Gros Morne in Newfoundland - at least 2km hike away from anyone. We were awake in the tent around 2am when we heard rustling nearby. A bear went right past our tent, probably 30 feet away, could hear him grunting as he passed. He went down toward the beach where we had left our pot/dishes set that wasn't quite clean. We heard him clinking that around. It was pretty bone chilling. My bf spent the next hour on his laptop googling what to do...I kind of just relaxed and went back to sleep - lol. In the morning, we checked the bear post, and our garbage bag had been torn down from the sack and rifled through. I really don't know what we could have done if he had just plunged himself into our tent. Guess we'd be dead!
Gay bear attack - Even more dangerous
I think I might have found somewhere else to be if I came across that
