While on vacation in Canada, Denver resident Sherry Moore had an exciting evening run.

Moore said she enjoys the thrill of traveling to new places and finding her way, but this thrill was more than she hoped for.

"I literally took this dumb selfie of myself because I saw these boulders and thought of being at home like, 'Oh, it's just like I'm at home climbing one of the fourteeners or something' and then right as I take the picture, this bear just jumps down onto the trail."

The bear started to follow her down the trail and suddenly charged.

"I just stopped and it got up on its two feet and right in front of me and I just stared at I and started screaming at it like a dog."

Before running away, she said she waited until the bear was completely gone.

It goes to show that the advice for what to do when you are confronted by a black bear, to always make yourself look large and yell loudly to scare it off, actually works.
