VIDEO: Alaskan grizzly bear surprises tour group

This is the terrifying moment a massive grizzly bear walked past a group of tourists at a remote Alaskan nature reserve where the tour guide spoke directly to the large predator to encourage it to leave the area. 

The video, which was shot by Cara Siciliano in Alaska’s Katmai National Park, shows how she was walking down the path with her friends when the bear suddenly appeared from behind them. 

In the footage, the seaplane captain who brought the tourists to the area, said to the bear: 'Hey, big boy!'

The captain used a clear and monotone voice as he spoke, to avoid startling the bear.  

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.

The footage, which was shot on July 14, was posted on TikTok where it has been seen my more than 10.6 million people.  

The animal, who had just been fighting with another grizzly further up the trail, walked up to a sign warning about the presence of bears, before turning around and leaving the area. 

The group stayed still as the captain addressed the bear, which according to experts is the correct way of dealing with such an encounter.
