As most people who went to sleep away camp know, bears are more scared of us than we are of them. But still, you do not want to get close to one of the powerful animals.

So when Kevin Burton was hiking with his buddy near Rae Lakes in Kings Canyon National Park and spotted a bear on the hiking trail, he calmly told the bear to go around. 

Incredibly, the bear seemed to understand, and upon noticing them, took a shortcut around them

“Good boy! Good boy!”
