A black bear attacked a man who was soaking in his hot tub Sunday afternoon in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada.

When he turned around he found himself face to face with a male black bear. The man yelled at the bear and it retreated. The man went into his home and called police. The police were able to located the bear about 100 meters away and killed it.

Officials stated that an autopsy will be performed on the bear in an attempt to determine the motivation for the attack. The man was treated for cuts on the back of his head at a local hospital.
