It’s fairly often that we hear of tragic encounters between wild animals and humans “who just wanted to take a photo.” Still, it doesn’t seem to be enough of a warning for people who want to pose with wild animals for social media.

TikTok user Alessandro Băcăoanu recently published a video of a woman who tried to pose next to a bear while a man photographed her from a car’s roof. The bear lunged at her, and she was lucky to escape fast enough.

According to LADbible, the video was filmed in Romania. The guys who filmed it speak in Romanian, saying something about how stupid the woman is trying to pose next to a bear. Well, I can agree with that, in every language I speak or understand.

The same source writes that Romanian authorities have already issued warnings for drivers who see bears by the road. “The bear is a wild animal protected by law, not a pet,” said Costel Alexe, the Minister of the Environment. “I say once again to the citizens of this country: a bear which has tasted biscuits, wafers, and feels that he can get his food in this way, will never be able to adapt to the forest again.”

Judging from the video, the bear gave the woman a warning and a proper scare. If she didn’t run into a car, this encounter probably wouldn’t have had a happy ending as it did. And to be honest, I wouldn’t blame the animal. Stay away from wild animals, especially big and dangerous ones. Get a longer lens if you want to photograph them, and endanger neither them nor yourself.

    She should be heavily fined for her stupidity and forbidden to ever go to that area again. If the bear really attacked her they would have to put him down.

    Damn. That’s dumber than dumb. Saw the bear clip from faces of death when I was a kid — same scenario involving photographer wanting a photo of bear, also with a bunch of cars around to proved false sense of security. His family got to watch daddy become lunch.

    My family lives on the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska, so I’m familiar with seeing Brown bears but I must say the bear in this video is impressive. Does anyone know what kind of bear this might be?

      The incident happened in Romania, here we have brown bears. Search for “Carpathian brown bear” for more info.
      Romania has one of the largest population of bears and dwindling forests, so the bears come closer and closer to the cities, so interaction between them and the people gets more common. This makes a lot of people consider that the bears are tame, which cannot be further from the truth.
      A lot of people forget that these bears come close to cities because they are hungry, and you DO NOT WANT to be close to a hungry wild animal.

    Up here in alberta canada you can get a HUGE fine for trying to get a picture with any wild life… if a bear starts popping its jaw it’s a warning sign. So
