Two men jogging on the Matcheetawin Discovey Trails near Fort McMurray, Alta., earlier this month got quite a scare after a close encounter with a black bear.

Bruce Allan posted a video of the encounter on YouTube.

In the video, which was filmed on June 5, the bear follows the joggers for several minutes, coming extremely close but never attacking. 

"You have to let us go," urged one of the people in the video. 

The bear eventually appeared to lose interest and the joggers sprinted to their vehicle and out of harms way.
