Well, not all parts of the US are defanged and sanitised. Alaska is one of those states where there are plenty of predators who have little fear of man. Predators like bears of all kinds; black , brown, grizzled and Polar. Here is one Alaska camper who was probably wishing he had packed some extra underwear for the trip.
I hope Mr Tripathi will brush up on his American idioms and watch his grammar a little bit in the future ....., just so he doesn't make us Indians look bad. It has nothing to do with eating but it could be. It is "Sometimes you get the bear and sometimes the bear gets you" and you can substitute "git" instead of "get" if you are south of the Mason-Dixon line. I can still hear Mrs Stan of Mrs Stan's Primary School in Kirkee, Poona (yeah, it was still called that back then) saying: "You cannot use "but" or "and" after punctuation.
Still, sitting in the comfort of a warm building, I can safely say that it is a beautiful video, enjoy:
Camper Takes Video Of An Alaskan Brown Bear Stopping To Sit And Admire The View ... Right Next To Him
AUG 12, 2015 ARCHIT TRIPATHI UNEXPECTED
Sometimes they say you eat the bear, sometimes the bear eats you, but every so often, the bear may just have a little sit down with you instead. Drew Hamilton is an employee of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game who was camping at the McNeil River State Game Sanctuary and Refuge. He was watching other bears fish in the river below when a huge Alaskan brown bear walks up to his campsite and sits down right next to him.
Thankfully, Hamilton kept his composure. The bear appears to be pretty calm and, although it is definitely a natural response, acting scared and screaming/running may have agitated the bear into action (and/or one or more of the other bears down in the river below). He managed to capture this incredible footage on a very close encounter, before the bear eventually walks away again.
McNeil River State Game Sanctuary and Refuge is the home of the world's highest concentration of wild brown bears thanks to the area's abundant salmon population. According to their website, at least 144 individual bears can be spotted on the river over the course of the summer and up to 74 bears have been spotted in a single encounter. In order to protect humans and the bears, visitors receive permits to access the viewing area via a lottery system.

Notice that the gun (stainless and black object in the bottom right of the frame) is closer to the bear than to him.
I'll be willing to be that he keeps it closer from now on.
