The terrifying moment a snowboarder is unknowingly chased down the slope by a bear

Kelly Murphy hadn’t a care in the world as she sang along to Rihanna at Hakuba 47 in Japan.

SNOWBOARDER KELLY MURPHY decided to make a video of herself on a visit to the Hakuba 47 resort in Japan over the weekend.

What Kelly doesn’t realise as she travels down the slopes singing along to Rihanna’s Work, however, is that there’s an alarmingly-large bear in hot pursuit.

The animal comes dangerously close before she picks up some pace and leaves it in her tracks.

Seemingly unaware of the encounter, Murphy wrote under the YouTube video:

OMG! I was going through my snowboarding videos and I found a bear chasing me!!! I nearly got eaten!!! This was at Hakuba 47 in Japan, filmed yesterday! Be careful people!!!”

Frightening stuff.
