Bear that chased hikers just being herself, but beware: she's no longer being tracked

  Bear that chased hikers just being herself, but beware: she's no longer being tracked The grizzly bear that chased a group of hikers Sunday, as well as a dog sledder last month, is just being friendly.  But Bear 148, notorious for her previous pursuits of park-goers, is “very friendly,” said a Banff National Park official. “She has literally hundreds of encounters every year with visitors and has not had a single contact charge or really negative encounter with people,” said Bill Hunt, the park’s resource conservation manager. The grizzly was part of a five-year research program with collared bears that ended just recently. The expired collar collects no data.

Diana Chase, the owner of the Pine Mountain Inn in Los Padres National Forrest, opened her home garage and saw the bear eating dog food.

Instead of panicking, she took out her phone and recorded the hungry bear.

“Oh, look at the mess you made, isn't that special,” she can be heard saying as the bear munches on food.

"You can't have it!" she urges.

The bear eventually made his way out of the garage, but stayed close in the hopes of getting another chance to munch on the dog food he spilled.

“I was nervous it didn’t leave because it can do a lot of damage,” she told Inside Edition. “I did get a little nervous because he would not back off.”

Chase said the bear was young and didn’t seem aggressive.

She said she sprayed Windex at the bear to try and make him back off and kicking an old washing machine in an effort to frighten the bear.

The bear eventually left the property and Chase was able to close the garage.

“It really was exciting for me,” Chase told Inside Edition. “It is really exhilarating photographing a bear.”
