(WTVR) – Stand your ground and fight back. Those are two suggestions the Mother Nature Network published in an article on how to survive an encounter with a black bear. In a video recently posted on YouTube, a woman is seen doing just that.

In the video titled “The Bear Meets Nishanto,” you can see a black bear wandering in someone’s yard. As the bear climbs the steps to what appears to be a back deck, someone off camera yells, “Nishanto, the bear is here.”

Moments later a woman – presumably Nishanto – appears on the deck and yells at the bear.

“Get down,” she cries. “Right now. Go. No. Down!”

The large bear obeys the commands, backs down and runs off.

What would you do in that situation? Let us know on Facebook.
