Texting And Walking Leads To Bear Encounter [Video]


I’m guilty of walking around staring at my phone sending texts and e-mails while being completely oblivious to what’s going on around me, but after watching this video, I may stop doing that.

A man in La Crescenta, California was texting while walking down his driveway when he came face to face with a black bear. Lucky for all of us, a news helicopter was following the bear through the neighborhood, so the hilarious encounter was caught on video! The man was interviewed by a KTLA news reporter after the incident.

Department of Fish & Game officials arrived at the scene a short time later.

They shot the bear with at least three tranquilizer darts.

The bear was able to knock two darts out before they took full effect, Sgt. Mark Slater said.

After the bear was knocked out, they loaded him into a ‘culvert trap,’ which Fish & Game said is the safest way to transport the large animal.

He was released deep in the Angeles National Forest. The exact location is not being disclosed.
