When a dog and wild bear emerge from the woods it's hard to tell if the bear is acting aggressively. However, after chasing the dog away this bear lunges after a few spectators, causing them some slight panic. Luckily the bear returns back to the woods, leaving us with some pretty intense footage.

    Protecting the young just like people would do. It chases the danger away.

    I didn;t really see any aggression, I mean maybe I guess. But I definitely DIDN'T see it lunge toward any spectators. Did the OP actually watch the video? WTF?

      0:23 Bear redirects its attack (false) towards humans.

    That bear is a juvenile. I'm sure this was play and the people were in no danger. Best to take precautions though. I've seen YouTube videos were juvenile bears have been shot and that REALLY pisses me off. I've got no problem with the responsible and reasonable harvesting of adult bears, but leave the youngsters alone!

      Bears in Finland are not as big as in America . This is not a juvenile. It's over 2 years old for sure. And it's not being hunted here.

    I'm just guessing but does Ja toiseta kuvakkulmasta translate to "big bear, big bear chase me" ?

      It's a bear hunting dog, so it was just another day at the office for him.

    Wild animals should be left alone. When will humans learn? DUH,,,,,,,,,

    There was no attack. The bear and dog were clearly playing.

    Obviously a hoax. Someone's tossing sticks out from the trees, apparently to coax the dog, and probably a domesticated bear to go fetch it out on the street. Paying little if any attention to the onlookers, its when the bear actually notices theres people ahead when it abruptly darts back into the trees. "Aggressive bear charges"? What a misleading sham.

    as an old dog trainer I can spot that the dog is in play mode and so is the bear , there mates playing , it's quite common for bears and dogs to build a common bond , you should watch the video of the huskies chained to stakes and left over night to rest and during the night polar bears turn up just to play with them , no eating of huskie's , every species has a language it's just about learning how to communicate .

    OMFG!!! That bear was NOT aggressive, and did NOT charge at those people! It was obviously PLAYING with the dog, and probably thought those @ ssh *le people wanted to play, too!! I found the bear adorable, and the title of this article offensive!
