He's not wrong though. That's what's terrifying about being hunted by humans. Animals can run from us but we can track them and we WILL catch up.

Pretty sure most humans I see at Walmart aren't catching up to any prey that isn't already dead

That's true. I'm also not seeing many polar bears at Walmart though.

Which is kinda the point. We have giant swaths of land that predators avoid at all costs because they know that we are to be feared as a species.

There are all those soft meaty lethargic people and predators absolutely know better than to get near them.

We've always been hunter-gatherers. The folks at Walmart are gatherers.

Polar bears are one of the animals that will actively hunt humans I seriously doubt they are going to be afraid of one

Yeah they are one of maybe 2-3 animals on the planet that will see humans as good and not a predator. And the only reason for that is because they live in pretty much the only place humans cannot populate. They see humans as food because they are always starving, and because they never see us.

Weird thing is, we have literally driven them to the brink of extinction and most humans have never even seen one. That's how high we are on the food chain.

He is wrong. That observation clearly does not apply to this situation. The photographer is not using his superior stamina to chase down this bear and kill it while it’s exhausted.

Dude polar bears are one of the few animals that can easily shrug off gun shots, unless you're walking the arctic with a bandolier of grenades you're fucked.

Grenades to a polar bear is like a snap pop firework. You need a nuke.
