A woman in Connecticut had a close run-in with two black bears while she was out hiking and managed to the record the whole incident.

Stephanie Rivkin was hiking near Burlington, Connecticut says a report in the ABC News and posted the video on Facebook.

She told ABC News, “The teeth scared the hell out of me…I was thinking, ‘Oh, he’s going to take a whole leg muscle out in one bite.”

In the video, the bears are seen roaming pretty close to Rivkin and while Stephanie continued recording, one comes really close to her before running away.. At one point, Rivkin tells the bear, “Don’t get crazy.” The bear also put its mouth on her leg, although he does not bite.

It’s a little scary to watch given how close the encounter was, but luckily Stephanie walked away unharmed.
