Ha Ha Clinton-Dix crossed paths with 2 bears & lived to tell the tale 

Quote:

Former Chicago Bears safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix might’ve left Chicago for the Dallas Cowboys in free agency, but surely there’s no hard feelings.

Unless you count two random bears (as in actual bears) that might’ve had a bone to pick with him.

Clinton-Dix posted a video to Instagram of his close encounter with a mama bear and her cub while he was riding his scooter. And it was certainly a close call.



For those don't want to click the article link and/or click the link to go to HaHas Instagram (Not even sure why they embed the post in the article if the video can't be watched there):


Fled from those bears it was a RB carrying the ball!

I believe it is because some Twitter people want impressions and to do that they need to be played on the Twitter domain. I'm not sure, but I feel it comes back to money.

I'm a bit disappointed they don't seem to say where this happened, Haha Twitter says Orlando Florida, so maybe it happened there?

If thinking, I probably would have froze and tried not to move and slowly back away, all while keeping the scooter as a potential if needed weapon to swing.

At least that's what I've been taught to do, when going into known bear areas, as if you just run, they might chase. Being caught off by seeing Bears in the city like that, who knows lol.

Also I always found those scooter hard to ride since being taller, but maybe that's just me.

Yeah it is easy to say what you would have done if it were you. (Me too.) But in that 1/10,000th of a second the body is doing stuff before the brain can sort it out. I was thinking of climbing on the mini van's roof. But he was long gone before all the good ideas registered.

And some people say he doesn't have any speed.

Very true, and I'm not blaming him for his react at all, as he got out of there before the Bears knew what was going on (both in the video and Chicago for that matter)

But I also know my first instinct is to freeze; not to run. And while this instinct might be absolutely horrible against a large predator, due to my size not many people or animals have decided to mess with me (except things with wings, as they just don't give a F***), I hate wasps and geese lol. #GeeseGetOFFtheSidewalkImWalkingHere lol

The only reason running is wrong is that it can set off a predator to chase and attack. And the biggest danger Dix was up against was that it was a mother with a cub. If she thought her cub was in danger, she would have attacked.
I actually had a VERY close encounter with a huge black bear. I was bow hunting for deer in northern Wisconsin. I was sitting on the ground, when I heard something in the brush coming towards me. I thought it was a deer, so I got on my knees and readied my bow.....out of the brush comes this bear, running straight at me! I knew my bow would do no good, so I dropped it and pulled out my Buck knife. I figured if it was gonna kill me, I’d at least get in a few blows.
I stood up, waved my arms and yelled “HEY! Get outta here!” It stopped, “woofed!” At me. I yelled at it again “GET OUTTA HERE!!!”
It woofed again, turned and ran. After it disappeared into the woods I started shaking uncontrollably!
I walked off the distance it was at when it stopped, and it was about 25 yards. Sounds like a lot, but it could have covered that distance in a couple seconds. Quite a adrenaline rush!

I have always felt mine would be to freeze too but that i the funny thing about instinct, you just don't know what you are going to do until after it is all over and you think, "What the %^$* just happened?"
Haha may well freeze 50 times out of 100. Run 20 times out of 100. Wet himself 30 times. Soil himself 15 times. Yeah it more than 100. Who says you can't do more than one thing at a time? 😆

Cool story Cheesey.

Thanks WPR!
I was hunting with a friend of mine. We had split up and agreed to meet back at the car at noon. We got back to the car at the same time. I still had on my camo face mask, and he asked me if I had seen anything. I said “no deer, but I shouted down a bear”....he said “yeah! Sure you did!” I took off my face mask and said “does it look like I’m joking?” ( it had just happened a couple minutes earlier)
His eyes got WIDE! He knew I wasn’t kidding!😂
