Wild footage out of Idaho where dirt bike rider Logan Slone crossed paths with an adolescent black bear while on a mission to find a jacket that he had left behind the previous day. Given that the bear was a juvenile, Logan was on high alert that momma bear might be around and want to give him the business for hitting her kid but luckily she wasn’t. Thankfully both Logan and the bear were uninjured and he went on to find his lost jacket. WIN!
“What started as a simple evening ride to search for my jacket from the previous day turned into quite a story after an adolescent black bear ran into the trail, smashing right into my front tire, washing out my bike and throwing me over the handlebars. Due to the small size of the bear, I immediately became concerned that I would be facing an angry momma bear charging at me while my left leg was pinned under the bike. Situational awareness and being prepared are key components of traveling out into the wilderness by yourself. Grateful that neither myself nor the bear were injured in this encounter, and stoked that I actually had my GoPro on for once. If I ever have a video go viral, this has got to be it.” –Logan Slone
