Wayne MacRae, was on the beach taking video of beluga whales in Hudson Bay last Monday when he looked over his shoulder and saw a frekn polar bear.
The huge animal was prowling the area between MacRae and the safety of the townsite.
"At first, the bear was working his way away from me, and I thought I was in the clear. Then he started throwing his head in the air and sniffing the air, circling back towards me, coming in my direction at a trotting pace. That’s when I started to get freaked out and running for my life."
Wayne ended up being able to keep all his limbs. Things didn't end up so well for the poor polar bear.
Officials said he had to be "put down" do to his aggressive nature.
