The man, wearing a black vest and cargo trousers, continues waking towards the young bear.
The man then crouches down and lifts up what appears to be a stone before taking another step towards the backtracking bear.
He then turns and begins walking back towards the car and the bear snatches its opportunity to charge at the man.
The man sprints for his life and manages to get around the other side of the vehicle as the bear can be seen standing on its hind legs before the car speeds away.
Netizen ‘Ananas’ commented: “That bear is a little warrior.”
While ‘Liudmila Kamchatka’ added: “A suicide bomber.”
