Dave Ellison recently underwent a hip replacement, but that didn’t stop him doing some yard work, walking cane in hand. However, adding a bear to the mix wasn’t ideal, as CCTV footage taken at Ellison’s house shows.
In the April 28 footage, a black bear is seen walking across the yard near to where Ellison is working. Unseen by him, it then hides behind a tree, from where it pops its head out in an almost playful manner. A startled Ellison tries to move away, hampered by his condition. Luckily, the bear decides to continue on its way. Credit: Dave Ellison via Storyful
