Riding your bike on a downhill mountain path is dangerous enough all on its own – hence the helmets and pads these guys are wearing. But this ride down a course in Slovakia provided an added source of peril – a bear. Thankfully, the killer animal gave up the chase rather quickly.
A reminder that not every encounter with a bear ends up like The Revenant. While shooting wildlife pics, this photographer was approached by a brown bear who decided to sit down right next to him. If it weren’t shot back in 2014, we’d be wondering if it were Adam Savage.
