However, this did not frighten her much, and she calmly decided to continue her campaign. And then suddenly Victoria came across a walking bear.
“This animal turned out to be a black bear that was coming down. He was very calm and just walked along the trail. At that moment, I noticed that there were also tourists upstairs,” she said. “So the bear was between me and the tourists.”
