VIDEO: Bear uses GoPro camera lost by snowmobile
Where is the paws button? Hunter discovers amazing footage from BEAR when he stumbles upon a GoPro lost in snow months earlier
- Dylan Schilt was on a trail outside of Laramie, Wyoming, on an archery hunting trip
- He spotted a GoPro camera – which had been lost months earlier – on the ground
- When he returned to his camp, he loaded the camera and saw the video of the bear
A hunter was surprised to find a GoPro camera lost in the Wyoming wilderness, but was even more astonished when he watched the extraordinary footage she had filmed.
Dylan Schilt, of Laramie, said he was hunting with a bow and arrows in nearby mountains earlier this month when he found the action camera, which had fallen from a snowmobile months earlier .
It seems Dylan wasn’t the first to find him. When he managed to charge the camera, the hunter discovered that a bear had managed to turn on the device and film himself.
The footage includes some really wobbly selfies and close-up views inside the beast’s mouth.
A bear found a lost GoPro on a trail outside of Laramie, Wyoming, earlier this month
The bear was somehow able to operate the camera and took the device in its mouth
The footage also showed the terrifying claws of the animal he uses to tear apart its prey
The footage shows the bear holding the camera and apparently even considering eating the device, which had been left in the wild for about four months.
Schilt uploaded the video to his Facebook page while explaining what happened to skeptical viewers.
He wrote: “Last week, while hunting archery, I ran into a lost GoPro on a snowmobile. When I got back to the camp I loaded it up and couldn’t believe what I saw.
“After four months, a big black bear found it and not only managed to turn it on, but also started recording while playing with it.
“By far the craziest thing I have ever found!” “
The footage has been viewed over 400,000 times on Facebook since it was posted on September 22, with over 1,400 comments.
One viewer, Neil Throndson, said: “By far the best way to see the inside of a bear’s mouth!”
Hunter Dylan Schilt said the bear found the camera four months after it got lost in the snow
The bear even took the camera and inadvertently gave a view of the landscape
Trish McDaniel said: “I don’t think he plays with it … I think he eats it, lol!”
Jade Gibbs thought the animal was “looking for the bear’s necessities.”
Julie Ann Nevill thought the bear was “so curious and playful”, while Amanda Jo added: “These are amazing pictures! Beautiful scenery, beautiful bear. ‘
Amber Cross added that the images were the point of view of her death in her “bearmares”.
But Stephen D. Miralles wasn’t convinced, saying, “This guy just put a go pro in a well-known bear zone and put peanut butter on it. ‘
