Close shave with a grizzly bear - tourist encounter in Alaska - amazing pictures

Tourists thought they were watching bears salmon fishing from a safe distance in Alaska's Katmai National Park.

Then a huge grizzly charged at them and the 10 tourists and a guide froze – which is fortunate because the grizzly was just being nosey. It circled them, sniffed one the group's hoods and finally wandered off.

Wildlife experts say that bear attacks are rare. Most occur when there are only one or two people in the area.
