Local, Corey Boux, who is a tour guide for Wedge Rafting at Tag Whistler caught a crazy encounter on video. A grizzly bear charging a Kayaker in Squamish!

The encounter happened at Elaho River in Squamish. Corey was co-guiding a tour when a grizzly bear charged after the safety kayaker in the front of the group.

The majority of the encounter was caught on Corey’s GoPro camera and shared on Instagram later.

Corey said that the bear was guarding a dead elk and caught sight of the kayaker and rafts. He explained further in the comments of his Instagram post that grizzly bears can be very unpredictable, especially when guarding a food source.
