WATCH: Bear Charges Man in Northern Ontario

You'll be holding your breath watching this...

A hunter got the scare of his life, and on his birthday no less, when a black bear charged and knocked him over on May 17, 2017.

The man is a seasoned archery hunter and at the time was hunting on his land in Hearst, Ontario, Canada.

The man stated to The Weather Network: ‘It is a true learning experience as to how unpredictable our wild black bears can be. I decided to share with everyone to show people on how fast a bear can charge attack an individual.’

The bear was not injured and the hunter was nursing an elbow and ego bruise.
