A skier in Romania got quite the scare over the weekend when a bear suddenly emerged from the woods and began chasing him down the mountain.
According to reports, the incident occurred this past Saturday at a resort in the community of Predeal.
As some guests were riding the ski lift, they saw the skier being pursued by the bear and started yelling to warn him about the predicament. They told him to ski faster and said "God forbid, don't look back!"
The skier decided to ditch his backpack, which drew the animal's attention away from him and allowed him to escape unharmed.
Authorities say the bear in question has been seen frequently at the resort and they may be forced to relocate the creature.
