Transcript for Jogger describes how she survived encounter with a bear
Now we'll go to that jogger who survived a bear encounter caught on camera. The bear charging right at her, but she managed to scare it off just in time. Will reeve is here with the story. Good morning, will. Reporter: Hey, Michael. Good morning. Close call here, a display of quick thinking, staying cool under pressure from a woman narrowly escaping what could have been a tragic moment all while taking a sselfie. No. Reporter: This is the moment a black bear charges at an unsuspecting jogger. Reporter: Sherry Moore capturing the terrifying encounter on tape. The bear seen here heading onto a trail last weekend in Canada, slowly advancing and then racing toward the frightened runner. It stood up on its hind legs right in front of me, and it started making these huffing noises and crunching noises with its teeth. Reporter: Look closely. The bear began shifting its focus in her direction and then seconds later, takes off. No. When it got up to me and got on its hind legs, I looked into its eyes and I thought, I'm done. I'm going to be mauled. Reporter: That's when Moore starts screaming. No. Get down. Get back. I started screaming at it like a dog. It walked away without looking back at me, and I waited until I saw it go behind some bushes and I ran as probably -- the fastest I ever ran in my life. Reporter: Her fitbit recording her heart spiking during the encounter. I'm hoping that by my having this experience, it will open the eyes and have other people be more aware of their surroundings. Reporter: Experts say staying calm and backing away slowly is the right move should you find yourself in this situation. Moore did everything right, thankfully.
