WATCH: Edmonton man feeds beaver meat to bear.

BEAR NEW

Edmontonian Zack Brown had a close encounter with a black bear in northern Alberta. 

On May 23, Zack was on a quad ride with an outfitting group near High Level when he spotted a bear. 

Zack slowed down his quad and waited for the bear to come closer. Once the bear was within arm's reach, Zack held out the beaver meat. 

The bear took the meat and then walked off.
