Camera Captures What It’s Like to Get Eaten by a Grizzly Bear

When Brad Josephs took his GoPro camera out in beautiful Alaska, he was probably trying to get majestic footage of Grizzly bears for the BBC’s Great Bear Stakeout. Instead, what he got was a hungry mother Grizzly and her cub trying to eat his camera. We get some, shall we say, interesting views of what a Grizzly bear’s mouth looks like (not that that’s something we’re all interested in seeing, is it?).

Happily, the camera and the card inside made it unscathed, according to Josephs. “The bear only gently mouthed the camera, and didn’t even put a dent in it,” he said.

GoPro Grizzly Footage

That may or may not be attributed to the fact that Joseph had strapped the camera to a rock with a rubber band. There’s no telling what the Grizzly would do if the camera wasn’t secured. It gets even better: the BBC ended up running the footage in the program.

You know the old saying: a GoPro a day keeps the doctor away. Wait – that might not be right. But in the world of Grizzly bears, everything, including a GoPro camera, is fair game come dinner time. We reckon GoPro’s advertising department is going to have a field day with this one.

    Coming to think of it, I can imagine how it would feel to get eaten by a bear.

    It would hurt. A lot. And suck even more.

    At least he set up a nice shot for the ending.

    This looks just like Cloverfield! But someone missed the “Don’t feed the bears” sign in the park.

    It would probably hurt a lot for a few seconds, than you’d feel nothing at all.

    Thanks for showing that. Now the next time someone asks if I’ve ever seen the inside of a grizzly’s mouth I can finally answer yes!

    is there a photograph anywhere showing what the GoPro looked like afterwards?

    That is very mistakenly assuming you get killed immediately. The accounts of attack survivors as well as people who escaped while their companion was eaten alive is a very different story. Extremely excruciating having your face and limbs gnawed off, and it may take quite awhile before dying. Shock and adrenaline don’t always set in enough and they both wear off.
    Can’t remember if it was NatGeo, Macleans, or some other magazine.
