WATCH: Bear Attack Caught On Tape

This is why you don't mess with bears! 

A hunter in Ontario posted a video showing the moment he was attacked by a black bear while bow hunting.  

The YouTube post by Richard Wesley reads: 

I am so happy after this confrontation with a black bear during our spring hunt. No wounds except a bruised elbow and ego where the bear threw me down. Genuinely happy that this was a non fatal or tragic outcome. Proving that the black bear is a wild and unpredictable animal. Again so happy with the outcome.

Adult male black bears can weigh up to 550 pounds, sprint at 30 mph, and they have exceptionally good eyesight. The Canadian population numbers about 450,000 bears.

We're just glad this dude is alive.
