Man, distracted by texting, almost walks into bear attack (video)
A man was texting and walking when he looked up to see a 400-pound black bear right in front of him. The crazy scene was captured on video by California-based station KTLA 5.
The clip shows the man, apparently shocked and scared, running as fast as he could away from the bear.
Authorities were able to subdue the bear with tranquilizers.
The animal was taken to a nearby forest and released into the wild.
