The tense encounter occurred inside an Arctic Pipe Inspection backyard at Prudhoe Bay, where the momma bear and her cubs are fairly well known to workers.
When you work at a remote oil area in Alaska, it pays to be bear aware.
The tense situation lasted about a minute.
The Alaska Division of Fish and Game informed the employee that the sow and her cubs routinely feed in location dumpsters.
The employee shown watching from the yellow loader vehicle told FTW Outdoors that the sow was aggressive because had temporarily lost sight of her various other cub.
Another worker caught the footage from the security of the shop.
In the accompanying footage, an oil-field worker is revealed scurrying onto the cab of a truck to run away an aggressive grizzly bear and one of her 2 cubs.
