'There Are Bears Here?' Alaskan Bear Turns Around When Faced With Park Sign

A massive brown bear casually walking along a hiking path in Alaska’s Katmai National Park on July 14 stopped and turned around when faced with a park sign showing the kind of animal populating the park – bears.

In this video, taken by park visitor Cara Siciliano, the giant bear strolls past her tour group as her seaplane captain is overheard greeting the creature, saying, “Hey, big boy!”

Speaking to Storyful, Siciliano said that she was walking down a path in the park with her friends when the bear suddenly appeared behind them.

Siciliano said the captain, who has guided trips in the national park hundreds of times, said he had never witnessed anything like this before in his life. Credit: Cara Siciliano via Storyful
