CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Bear chases Alberta joggers

A massive bear turned up to watch, but that didn't seem to be enough to send the players running.

In fact all of the fans and people watching the game remained completely calm as the bear wandered around.

At one point, the spectators at the game were even heard laughing.

"The Bear is a black bear who probably was just hoping to find some peace and quiet," said Archipelago Webcasting who posted the video to YouTube earlier this week. "The game was halted until we were sure what the bear's intentions were. Interesting note is that this baseball field was under a glacier 200 years ago. We are hoping to make it a turf field one day."

The game was an American Legion baseball game played between West Anchorage POST 1 and Juneau POST 25.
