Sometimes people need a material reminder that grizzly bears, though they look cumbersome and slow-moving, are actually very fast. Faster than you are.
Just look at this footage shot in Yellowstone. This woman, apparently thinking she's safe just because in a parking lot, stands filming several grizzly bears from a distance that, well, a bear could cover in an instant.
Then, one of the grizzlies bluff charges the woman at a gentle lope - barely jogging, in grizzly terms, but the woman gets the picture (albeit a bit late). She finally turns and walks away from the half-wall in front of her, realizing that it stands about the same chance of stopping a charging grizzly as a Triscuit would have stopping us.
