Watch: Black bears throw down near Powell River

"This was no play fight."

Peak editor Shane Carlson and his wife Kris caught two bears fighting on camera Thursday afternoon.

The pair was on their way to Inland Lake for a bike ride when they stumbled across the wild animals.

One bear was apparently following the other.

"We thought they were travelling together, then they veered off the road and the lengthy fight ensued," said Carlson, moments after the encounter. "The video gets better as we get right alongside them. This was no play fight."
