Damian Gillis captured what might be 20 of the most Canadian seconds we’ve ever seen on video.

Filmed in Waterton Lakes National Park, the video shows a fully-uniformed Mountie chasing a small black bear up a tree and then across a field away from a group of tourists.

Posted on Wednesday, July 26, the video has already racked up over 24,000 views.

“Nothing more Canadian than an RCMP office in red serge and a black bear,” Damian G wrote in the video description. “Truly Canadian image to celebrate Canada 150.”


We’re just sorry it isn’t longer.
