A snowboarder has filmed herself cruising down a slope completely unaware she is being pursued by a massive bear.

Kelly Murphy was in Hakuba 47 Winter Sports Park in Japan and used a camera on a selfie stick while speeding down a hill and humming Rihanna's 'Work'.

Just as she sets off a large bear can be seen just behind her.

It quickly disappears out of the frame but when the camera angle changes a few seconds later it can clearly be seen in full pursuit.

She said on YouTube: "OMG! I was going through my snowboarding videos and I found a bear chasing me!!! I nearly got eaten!!!"


"This was at Hakuba 47 in Japan, filmed yesterday! Be careful people!!!"

Thankfully Murphy escaped with all of her limbs intact.

She told the Mirror: "I've been snowboarding since I was a kid so I felt safe.

"I didn't realise until I looked at the video today! I was freaking out when I saw it and showed my friends who told me to put it on YouTube."

Some people however are a little dubious.

One commenter wrote: "Do they have brown bears in Nagano, in central Japan? Because that looks like a gigantic freakin' brown bear. Nice try. I call fake."
