Oblivious snowboarder discovers bear on footage
A snowboarder has shared video footage which appears to show a bear chasing her during a descent on a ski slope in Japan.
Kelly Murphy filmed herself during the snow run, but only realised that she was chased by a bear when she watched her selfie video back. She'd been wearing headphones and hadn't heard the bear.
She postage the footage to her YouTube channel and wrote: "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!!!"
Hakuba is a popular ski area near Nagano, the host city for the 1998 Winter Olympics.
Some of the people commenting on YouTube page doubted the authenticity of the clip.
