Bear charges at man recording garbage rummage

A Southern California man spotted a bear foraging through garbage.

He was recording, when the encounter took a terrifying turn.

The bear charges as the man's air-horn malfunctions.

Frank Ramos made it back into his house safely.

He said, "I really wasn't frightened, but it was like whoah! To me it was like a mock charge, probably to scare me off or whatever, I don't know if I would have continued if I stayed here but I didn't wait."

The Glendale man says he's seen a tagged female bear several times, but this one was a bit bigger.
