Listen how Mary Maley tries to reason and plead with an Alaskan black bear after she pepper sprays it in the face. Maley, explains on YouTube that she was on a solo kayak trip and heard the bear rummaging around while she was eating lunch. Things start out okay, because the bear is leaving her kayak alone. She thanks him for that, and then she pepper sprays him in the face. The bear is obviously not too happy about that and retaliates.
