A bear wakes up a sleeping man by the pool of his houseSep 162020
The video published by his wife shows how the animal touches him lightly and runs away when noticing that he had woken up.
Matt Bete was sleeping last Sunday by the pool in his garden, in the city of Greenfield (USA), when a bear entered the grounds of his house when he found an open door.
The animal first went to the pool, apparently to drink, and then approached the owner of the house. A video captured by a security camera and posted on Facebook by his wife, Dawn, shows how the plantigrade lightly touches the man and then runs away when noticing that he woke up.
Already from afar, the animal stared at Bete for a while, at which point he took advantage of this to take out his phone and record it. "Matt was just calm, he knew he had a chair and a stool to protect himself if necessary," Dawn Bete told CBS Boston.
