We don’t blame the hiker for the wobbly video.

After all, if we were just feet away from a grizzly barreling down the mountainside in full pursuit of two mountain goats, our video might be wobbly too.

Especially because the grizzly had two paths it could take when the mountain goats split up.

One of the paths led to where the hiker stood. Luckily for the hiker, the grizzly chose to go after Mountain Goat B.

This is just another bear story in a year where bear stories seem to be popping up everywhere.

From the news that the number of grizzly attacks at this point in the season is a record-breaker  to the numerous accounts of bears being euthanized due to human encounters, to the recent court ruling that keep grizzly bears on the Endangered Species List, bears have been everywhere in the news.

Couple these events with the ever-present smartphone and if you want bears, you’ve got ’em.

And because of the technology, we get to see things like this video which came out of Glacier National Park in Montana and was sent to NBC Montana on Monday morning.

No word if the mountain goat survived. The hiker, for some reason, chose not to run after the grizzly to get the footage.
