Wow, does one laugh or cry? If you have the audio on - definitely cry! I pity the people on the sailboat that ferried the woman home after this misadventure - I am sure that they didnt hear the end of the drama. They would have either jumped overboard or stuck screwdrivers or any sharp object firmly in their ears.....
Clearly she isnt a bear "whisperer"....

I had to put it on silent after 20 seconds. I can see why she is paddling alone. If you spent a day paddling with her you would smother yourself with honey and plead for the bear to end your suffering.
