Video: Grizzly Gets Way Too Close to Photographer

Drew Hamilton, a tech worker for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game was visiting the state’s McNeil River State Game Sanctuary last summer, photographing the bears in the river below, when another bruin walked up and took a seat beside him, acting as though it too was enjoying the view.

When the bear gets up and begins moving toward Hamilton, you can hear him behind the camera stomping his feet and yelling ‘hey!’ in an attempt to keep the bear moving on. The Alaska Dispatch says Hamilton just posted the video to YouTube this past Sunday, but its already drawn more than a half-million views.
