It is no longer a hidden that texting while walking can get you into serious trouble. However, some people like to learn the hard way such as the Californian man who walked into a 500lb bear while texting.
The entire event was being captured live by the KTLA 5 helicopter. The video shows the guy completely engrossed in writing his text, unaware that a giant black bear is heading right towards him.
But just before he could literally bump into the animal, he looks up and flees from the spot. It was later known that the guy was actually texting his boss regarding his late arrival at work. It was then he saw the giant bear coming towards him and ran for his life.
Los Angeles County Sherrif's office earlier issued warnings to the residents of La Crescenta and Glendale, California. The 400-pound Glendale black bear was first sighted in Manhattan Avenue and has his own Twitter account - Glen Bearian The Glendale Bear. The giant black bear has long been on the hit list due to its disturbing activities, especially after it broke into a house and served itself with frozen meatballs last month.
