She Was Just Out In Her Garage When She Came Face To Face With A Huge Bear

A Florida woman recently filmed her close encounter with a black bear, and even though these creatures are usually pretty docile, the footage is still harrowing.

Teliece Sander of Seminole County, Florida, was sitting in her driveway and playing games on her phone when she looked up and realized that a massive bear was approaching. Having heard that you should keep calm at all costs in these situations, she didn’t panic and sat there quietly, taking a picture of the large beast, which she then sent to her son. To the attachment, she added the words “help me.”

As the bear got closer, she realized that it seemed quite tame, so she did something that few people would ever have the courage to do. She caught the entire encounter on film.

Luckily for Teliece, this potentially deadly situation ended when her son, who is extremely tall and weighs 325 pounds, walked out of the house and scared the bear away with his presence.

5 Strange Places That Are Blacked Out By Google Maps

It’s probably safe to say that Google Maps is one of the greatest technological innovations of the last 10 years. With just a few clicks, you can view any place on the face of the Earth.

Well, almost any place.

There are some areas of Google Maps that, for one reason or another, are concealed or obscured in some very obvious ways. Here are the five most suspicious-looking ones…

1. Junction Ranch, CA

Google Maps

Junction Ranch is in the middle of California’s Mohave Desert. There lies a mysterious airstrip…some believe it’s part of the China Lake proving grounds, which is an air force testing location for drones. While that’s suspicious in and of itself, even weirder is that only parts of the base are obscured from Google Maps. When you zoom in on the base’s location, there are parts of buildings intentionally scratched out. What’s going on down there?

2. Sandy Island

Google Maps

Sandy Island was discovered by Captain Cook during his explorations of and around Australia in the late 1700s. However, despite the island being seen on maps for the last 200 years, the area where Sandy Island is supposedly located is mysteriously blurred out on Google Maps. Something fishy is going on there.

3. Thule Air Base, Greenland

Google Maps

During the Cold War, the U.S. had B-52 bombers carrying nuclear weapons on a regular basis. This strategy was supposed to serve as a deterrent to the Soviets. However, accidents happen and in 1968 a plane carrying a nuclear payload crashed while taking off from Thule Air Base in Greenland. During the crash, the nuclear weapon was said to have released a significant amount of radiation into the surrounding environment. The area of the crash is still blurred out on Google.

4. Kangtega, Nepal

Google Maps

This mysterious area in the Himalayan Mountains is completely blacked out on Google Maps. While the potential reasons why it’s blocked range from a military base to Nazi UFOs, it’s unlikely that we’ll ever know the full story. That is, unless you want to hike up all 22,000 feet to find out.

5. Siberia, Russia

Google Maps

Russia’s vast northern forests are seemingly a hotbed of paranormal and generally unexplained activity. While most of us wouldn’t bother looking at a forest on Google Maps, the Russian government isn’t taking any chances. Deep in the Siberian wilderness is an area of land that from far away looks normal…however, when you look closer, it’s very obviously copied and pasted from another place. The geography just doesn’t synch up. So that begs the question, what’s going on here?

Check out a video discussing all five of these places.

Well, those are pretty darned mysterious. I wonder if Google is working in league with some evil forces in the world to cover these sites up, or if something else entirely is at play.

This Shark Broke Into A Cage…With A Diver Still INSIDE

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again — I’m terrified of the ocean.

Of course, sharks play a big role in that fear. While I understand that they aren’t as bad as people paint them to be, there’s no way I’d ever go swimming anywhere near them. I just can’t risk something like this happening.

During a recent shark cage diving trip in Guadalupe Island in Mexico, things went very, very wrong for diver Ming Chan. As he was watching great white sharks that were swimming just outside of his cage, one of them lunged at the bait tied there and broke in.

While the man who filmed all of this says that the shark was likely just confused and couldn’t swim backwards, that doesn’t make this any less horrifying.

Luckily, Chan is a very experienced dive instructor and reacted quickly by swimming to the outside of the cage’s bottom as this happened.

He is completely unharmed and says that this experience has definitely not scared him away from future diving trips. He is a much braver person than I will ever be.

They Were Filming An Iguana When This Craziness Happened…What The Hell?

The “Planet Earth” filming crew was recently shooting footage of hatchling marine iguanas when they got a terrifying surprise.

Although snakes are known to eat iguanas, they typically hunt for their prey alone. It’s part of their nature that we all take for granted. Slippery, sneaky loners…that’s how I’ve always thought of snakes, until I saw this video. What the crew caught on camera is a never-before-filmed snake behavior. Take a look.

As a small iguana runs up a rock, a pack of snakes springs from the shadows. Incredibly, this is the very first time snakes have ever been filmed hunting as a group.

As if snakes weren’t frightening enough already, now we have to worry about being attacked by a whole pack of them?! Heaven help us.

They Were Out On A Romantic Swim When This Terror Decided To Join The Party

As a little girl, I was irrationally afraid of sharks or crocodiles showing up in swimming pools and biting my feet off.

Because of my extreme fear, let’s just say I’ve been more than a little paranoid when it comes to any body of water. Unfortunately, the following footage really doesn’t do much to help me get past this phobia.

When a couple was having a private swim in Kariba, Zimbabwe, one nasty visitor headed straight into the pool and proceeded to attack them.

I’d probably never get in a pool again if I were her.

It’s a good thing that swimming pools have already been ruined for me, because that’s just terrifying. On a lighter note, something tells me that guy is going to be in the doghouse for quite a while.

Be Careful Exploring Abandoned Places…They Might Not Be So Empty

For the adventurous among us, urban exploration is an exhilarating pastime. However, you must be careful when you’re exploring these places. Abandoned buildings are sometimes not as abandoned as you might think. That’s a lesson that urban explorer Jaroslava Langova learned in a terrifying way. Watch it all unfold in the video below.

Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

I think I peed myself a little bit there at the end. It’s not like I had any urban exploration plans, but if I did, this video would make me think twice.

20 Puppets That Are So Terrifying, They’ll Give You The Chills

If you’ve seen the horror movies “Annabelle” or “Dead Silence,” you might already be a bit nervous around puppets.

These things are meant to be cute and entertaining, but there’s something about their painted-on smiles and jerky movements that can also be really, really unsettling. We’ve gathered photos of 20 terrifying puppets that will give you some serious nightmare fuel. A few are meant to be creepy, while others look scary because of a lost battle with time. Either way, I’m definitely going to have bad dreams tonight.

Good luck sleeping tonight!

He Randomly Killed This Couple Then Began Eating Their Faces

Every once in a while, the story of a brutal crime absolutely stuns the country…a crime so senselessly brutal and animalistic, you wonder if it really was a human who committed the murder and not some wild creature. Some of these crimes have taken place in the state of Florida, and today’s story is no exception to that trend.

On Monday, 19-year-old Florida State University student Austin Harrouff was having dinner with his parents at a Duffy’s restaurant in Tequesta, Florida. During the meal, Harrouff became angry, stormed out, killed two people, and began eating the face of one of his victims.

According to police, they responded to a 9-1-1 call of a stabbing. When they arrived, they found 19-year-old Harrouff biting off part of a dead man’s face in the man’s own driveway.

The victims, Joseph Stevens, 59, and his wife, Michelle Karen Mishcon, 53, each suffered fatal stab wounds allegedly from Harrouff. A neighbor who tried to intervene also received several stab wounds but is expected to pull through.

“He had no criminal record … he was a good kid,” said Martin County Sheriff William when he briefed reporters of the situation. “There’s not one thing in this case that seems to make sense. We grasp to get our footing and try to understand what happened and why … but we can’t.”

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI1_BTF’); });

While it’s unclear what exactly caused Harrouff to become enraged and leave the restaurant, police were able to piece together what happened next.

The teen supposedly began walking in the direction of his father’s house, when he came across Stevens and Mischon sitting in their garage with the door open. That’s when he approached and attacked them.

While preliminary tests have turned up no drugs in Harrouff’s body, police think they may eventually find evidence of “Flakka.” Flakka is an intense drug that’s very similar to bath salts. Bath salts, if you remember, were responsible for the infamous 2012 Florida case where Rudy Eugene attacked a homeless man and chewed off his face.

Footage Shows Terrifying Moment When A Woman Was Kidnapped During A Pub Raid

As a woman, I’ve never been comfortable with walking alone at night.

Most of us are well aware of the dangers that women face while on their own, but unfortunately, we can’t always avoid venturing outdoors during the dark hours. Some must begin their journey home from work after the sun has set, making them less safe.

This woman experienced a nightmare come true after leaving her job one night. While walking home from the Old Boat House pub in Astley, England, on September 19, the 42-year-old was shoved into a van by complete strangers and taken back to the pub, where they forced her to hand over money from the register.

Police say that the robbers threatened to throw her into a canal if she refused to comply. They even punched her in the face twice.

Unfortunately, the robbers were able to get away in the van, which was later found in Tyldesley, England. Police are still looking for them. Share this if you think they deserve to be punished for what they did to this poor lady.
