A Glendora, California nature photographer thought it would be fun to see how wild animals reacted if he put a stuffed Santa on a game trail.
Robert Martinez’s video camera, set up in the San Gabriel Mountains, captured a large black bear nonchalantly knocking the stuffed Santa down on his face. Martinez posted the video to his YouTube page and titled it “Merry Christmas! Santa gets KO’d by a Bear!”
“I haven’t seen any bears on my cameras for a few months, so I was pleasantly surprised and happy that he knocked out Santa right in front of the camera,” Martinez said in an email to local media.
