Jeff Rossen of the Today show would not be too happy. Last month he put out a "Rossen Report" of the dangers of cliff jumping. Andrew Santos couldn't care less. It appears he's been taking tours all over British Columbia to test his antics on various waterfalls. I guess you would expect a guy dropping 50+ feet to look calm, but he appears to have nerves of steel. Last month we spent some time jumping around waterfalls in Jamaica and now that we have some more perspective, it is safe to declare these jumps as insane. Well worthy of this week's Thrill Thursday. Enjoy.
You can turn on almost any sports channel on tv and see guys hanging out in blinds and hunting stands looking for that prized animal. Well we've now found a video which they won't be showing on tv because its an amateur video taken by a hunter out on an excursion for black bears in Saskatchewan. These Canadians keep it much cooler than I would have. How would you like sharing a tree with this guy?
Skip to the second minute and enjoy the next few moments. What's the chance a larger bear shows up and chases the smaller bear up the exact tree you're hanging out in? Well that's the fortune of these guys.
Personally jumping out of the tree would've been appealing at many points but then you're just greeting a larger bear waiting below. These guys tough it out nicely and you can't help but be impressed by their Canadian kahonas. Making Father Nature proud.
Father Nature Outdoors- Because Mother Nature can be a pain.
A few days after the holidays and all sorts of great winter videos are gaining popularity. With some free time home on break, being outside to enjoy the snow sounds like the perfect thing do. However being outside in the snow can also lead to some unpredicatable situations. Most of the blame in these situations can't really be attributed to the cameraman(woman)- they just happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. So enjoy some up-close wildlife and be happy that your winter adventures haven't turned out this way, yet.
Given how many times you can count this man say "eh", chances are its in Canada. On a wintery trek he found himself face to face with a coyote who wont stop coming after him, and biting him.
He probably should've gone about it another way. For example, this guy has got it figured out.
The same defense technique probably doesn't work with larger animals though and it probably isn't easy to do it with skis, so my only advice for this guy is.. good luck.
That pretty popular video came out last week. I've dealt with plenty of moose, but given this situation there's not too much you can do. Wrong place, wrong time.
Father Nature himself would find some challenges in the previous videos. We all know by now that Mother Nature can be a pain. But there's a difference between dealing with nature and provoking nature. So finally enjoy these children getting way too close to a bison.
Father Nature commends the exceptional parenting of the kids in this video. Just a one ton bison chasing my kid in circles. Another day at Yellowstone..
That's probably enough fun videos for now. I hope your holidays were a tad more peaceful than that.
