This is the moment when a group of hikers kept their cool and even took a selfie when approached by a curious black bear.
Footage released shows a woman standing still while a wild black bear stands upon two legs and begins to sniff her.
She and her other hiker friends all remain calm and take out their cameras as they watch the bear inspect their friends.
The bear then gets back on all fours for only a moment before jumping back up on its hind legs and leaning on the lady.
The bear seems busy sniffing the lady’s head and is oblivious to the bystanders trying to distract it away from the woman.
What nobody expected, was the lady to seize the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and to take a selfie with the curious bear.
As if he knew what was going on, the bear waits for the selfie to be complete before dropping back on all fours, lightly swats the woman’s leg and wanders off.
This prompts the lady and her friends to rush off from the area.
