ha a couple years ago i was riding my bike down the street and out of nowhere i saw a bear running down the street the opposite way of me, it scared the fuck out of me, i live in a kinda mountainy place, but you never ever see bears, there just arent that many around here at all, and that was the first one ive ever seen. i thought i was gonna die, but it just ran right past me, then like 10 seconds later this suv came haulling ass down the street after the bear. i guess they had to shoot it, they couldnt capture it, and it was running down main streets and stuff, like past people outside of resturants eating, a movie theatre, neighborhoods, they had been chasing it for like 6 miles or something.
but yeah that was like the most random thing thats ever happened to me, just riding along on my bike and see a bear run past me like 20 feet away. it would be like a bear just walking around chilling in new york.
