Tigran Avakian and his family were hiking the Monrovia Falls Trail when they came upon a black bear who did not like the idea of humans being in its territory.

The bear was successfully scared off and the family cautiously made their way to the car.

As Tigran said, "When the bear charges, always stand your ground! Change pants later..."
