A tourist looking for wildlife in China’s northwestern Xinjiang Province got more than he bargained for when a brown bear charged at his car.[youtube width=”480″ height=”390″]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lYkyxaCLh3w[/youtube]
The man, Mr Quan, had spotted the wild animal by the side of the road and started filming it on his mobile phone when the bear suddenly rushed towards him. Mr Quan said he first thought the bear was a Tibetan Mastiff dog wandering on the grassland.
Local officials in charge of wildlife protection in Emin County said it was very unusual to see a bear wandering so close to the road in the daytime.
