Astonishing Footage Of Black Bear Filming Himself With A Lost GoPro Camera Goes Viral

An astonishing piece of footage has been discovered on a GoPro camera found by a man in Laramie, Wyoming.


While out in the wilderness, Dylan Schilt found the lost camera and looked at the several minutes of footage which shows a bear accidentally filming itself.


He said:


"Last week, when I was up archery hunting, I stumbled across a GoPro that was lost while snowmobiling. When I got back to camp I charged it up and couldn't believe what I saw. After four months of it sitting there, a big old black bear found it and not only managed to turn it on but also started recording himself playing with it."


In the video, the black bear can be seen pawing at the camera and carrying it around its mouth. The first few minutes involve the bear hitting the camera and it is then that it picks the device up giving a close-up of inside the bear's mouth. It is thought that the bear may have turned on the camera by pressing it in just the right place. Eventually, the bear loses interest in the camera and walks off into the distance.



It is estimated, given the climactic conditions, that the footage was created in late spring.


Schilt's adds:


"Hands down the craziest thing I've ever found!"


The video has now been viewed hundreds of thousands of times online across a variety of platforms.


This is hardly the first time that an animal has recorded itself. In 2011 a photo went viral after a monkey took a selfie with a man's camera. The man who owned the camera, David Slater, then spent years in court battling over who owned the copyright to the image. A court later ruled that animals can't own copyrights. Slater faced significant financial hardship as a result of the monkey selfie and the legal proceedings.
