(Video) Adrenaline fueled insanity: man slaps bear in face to protect family

A video of a protective man slapping a bear to scare it away from his family went viral on social media.

The guy even growled at the bear in a hilarious manner.

It’s not every day that we find an interesting scientific poll. New survey from YouGov took a playful approach and asked people which animal they could beat in hand to hand combat.

Surprisingly 6% of the interviewees believed they could go a few rounds with a grizzly bear and come out ahead. Considering none of them share the last name Nurmagomedov – we’re highly doubtful of this estimate.

When it came to a gorilla even more subject thought they had a decent chance – 8%. Crocodile was one step ahead with 9%.

On the other hand only 72% expressed belief that they could beat a rat in an unarmed fight. House cat trailed just below at 69% expressing that they believe they could beat a domesticated cat.

Which of the following animals, if any, do you think you could beat in a fight if you were unarmed?

RAT – 72%
HOUSE CAT – 69%
GOOSE – 71%
MEDIUM-SIZED DOG – 49%
EAGLE – 30%
LARGE DOG – 23%
CHIMPANZEE – 17%
KING COBRA – 15%
KANGAROO – 14%
WOLF – 12%
CROCODILE – 9%
GORILLA – 8%
ELEPHANT – 8%
LION – 8%
GRIZZLY BEAR – 6%

This poll was also given in the UK – and the answers differed slightly.

It takes guts for a mere human to go face-to-face with wild animals not to mention that bears far outweigh humans. Given how dangerous they are and what they are able to do, many people would choose not to challenge them with bare hands.

The whole scene was taken from a security camera that seemed to be on a farm. At the start of the clip, one woman and two dogs can be seen running away from something. Turns out a bear had entered their farm. While the others were running, a man decided to confront the animal.

“Get back! get back!” The guys shouted to his woman and dogs. When the bear advanced forward, he fearlessly slapped the bear right on its face. The bear was definitely more than surprised, especially after the man growled like a wild beast.

Tha man’s growls made a pretty funny sound, making the whole situation entertaining to watch. The video reached over 6 million views. The man’s identity is currently unknown as well as the type of bear they encountered.

People are adding jokes in the comment section for his hilarious growls while at the same time appreciating the man’s bravery for protecting his family.

“The dude said ‘call an ambulance, but not for me’.”

“laugh all you want but fight or flight and that Ole boy wasn’t playing.”

“This is the thing I like to imagine I would do if this ever happened to me.”
