Pro Skier Ani Haas Punched a Bear to Survive Attack [VIDEO]

Ani Haas Bear Attack
NBC

Ani Haas, a former member of the U.S. ski team, was jogging on an outdoor trail in Missoula, Montana Friday when she inadvertently got between a mother black bear and her cubs.

When momma bear attacked the 24-year-old, Haas “got big,” which is the counter-intuitive protocol for dealing with an aggressive black bear. Since that wasn’t enough to stop the bear’s charge, Haas was forced to punch the wild beast in the head, and then beat it with a rock.

Miraculously, Haas ended up pacifying the bear, and escaped with only flesh wounds.  Watch her talk about her ordeal below.
