Grizzly bear jumps in river, chases B.C. kayaker

The bear got a bit too close for comfort along the Elaho River near Squamish

A grizzly bear got a little too curious for a kayaker’s liking on a river near Squamish.

Corey Boux was part of a tour group paddling down the Elaho River, and started filming when a grizzly bear swam up to a kayaker. He posted the video last weekend.

Yells of “Oh my God!” and “Paddle!” echo from the tour group, as the kayaker turns their boat around and speeds away.
