It’s an astonishing sight, laced with shock and surprise.

Wild animal relocation and releases can be magical moments that fill human hearts with joy.

Moment - Bear - Montana - Animals - Magic

But one particular moment, involving a grizzly bear in Montana, reveals how unpredictable and frightening wild animals really can be, and how quickly the magic can turn into danger.

Writer and photographer Aaron Teasdale captured the stunning moment while documenting the conflicts between grizzlies and humans for the Sierra Club magazine, Sierra.

Clip - Incident - Release - Twitter - Thankfully

A short clip of the incident, in which the release goes temporarily wrong, has been shared on Twitter. Thankfully, no humans were harmed, but Teasdale’s camera, on a tripod, did get attacked by the bear, as it raced from the container, only to turn and charge the camera.

The bear can be heard not only attacking the camera, but breathing heavily during the incident. The camera continued to record, despite the attack.

Images - Lot - Eyes - Media

The images caught a lot of eyes on social media.

A more in-depth video about the incident, with Teasdale narrating, is published on YouTube. In it, Teasdale gives more information on the back story about why he was there and the relocation process for the bears.

Teasdale noted in his article that as conservation efforts to help save grizzly from extinction have been successful, the success comes at a price. For the grizzly bears.

“Magnificent though they are, grizzlies make for troublesome neighbors and lousy houseguests,” Teasdale wrote in the Sierra piece. “The giant animals are routinely spotted chowing on orchard fruits and scavenging pet food and garbage.
