Watch: Filmaker's Close Call with Polar BearSee the frightening footage
Scottish filmmaker Gordon Buchanan was almost lunch meat for a huge, hungry polar bear in Svalbard, Norway. While filming his upcoming BBC documentary "The Polar Bear Family & Me," Buchanan climbed into a bear-proof snowmobile to observe the animals closely. It seems he got a little too close for comfort when the bear caught his scent and began eagerly clawing and gnawing at the enclosure.
