When a bear wants to steal the deer you just shot, you let it.

That's what Michigan hunter John Wardynski had to do in a video he posted Saturday that showed a bear steal his kill.

Wardynski was walking toward the deer after shooting it in Alcona County, Michigan, when he noticed a bear standing next to his blind, he wrote on Facebook. At first, Wardynski said he thought seeing the bear was cool, but then he realized that it was walking parallel to him on the trail toward the deer.

The hunter tried to yell at the bear to leave the deer alone, but had to back up when the bear began to come toward him.

The bear can be seen on the video turning the deer over and starting to tear it apart.

Unable to shoot the bear, Wardynski had to leave the deer to be dragged away. He said he hopes to recover the antlers but would wait until the bear was done with it first.

The hunter said he had never experienced anything like this in his more than 50 years of hunting experience. The video he posted went viral and has been viewed more than 132,000 times.

Wardynski knew the bear that took his deer. “It’s a sow. Have trailcam pics of her & her cubs. The biologist said the berry crop failed & the oak mast is at 3 year low. She’s hungry,” he said in the video’s comments.

Firearm deer hunting season runs from Nov. 15-30 in Michigan.
