What is the scariest thing you’ve ever woken up to? For most of us, the worst thing we’ve ever woken up to is our alarm clocks on a Monday morning.
Of course, there are some people who are parents who might report that the scariest thing they’ve woken up to is their young child staring at them while sleeping, but it still pales in comparison to being stared at by a bear while asleep.

The bear wasn’t a fully grown bear. In fact, it was still a young adolescent, but that didn’t make it any less of a frightening experience. Not exactly what anyone wants to see from the other side of a glass door.
While it was definitely a terrifying sight to behold first thing upon opening your eyes, the dog didn’t seem to initially register that there was a bear staring at him.
The owner caught the footage on video, and it shows just how out of it the dog was upon waking up. In the video, the dog sort of blinks for a few minutes while looking up at the curious bear, probably confused or convinced he was still dreaming.
But eventually, the dog came too.
Once he was fully awake, he quickly reacted to the threat just outside his window.
He started barking, and the young bear got scared and ran off. Crisis averted!
