GLENDORA, Calif. -- A photographer set up a trail camera in the San Gabriel Mountain area to see if he could capture wildlife interacting with a toy Santa, KTLA reported.
And he succeeded!
Robert Martinez posted the above video to YouTube. It shows a large black bear approaching the stuffed Santa which has been propped up on a game trail.
The bear starts to inspect Santa with a few sniffs.
Soon after, wham! The bear knocks Santa right over.
Martinez titled the video, “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 KTLA.
His multiple trail cameras have captured some incredible footage, including a family of four mountain lions passing by in October.
