Cowboys' Ha Ha Clinton-Dix immediately flees after encountering two bears

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix has tackled countless players in his six-year NFL career. He was less enthusiastic about a confrontation with a bear and its cub.

The Dallas Cowboys safety posted an incredible video through Instagram on Tuesday that showed surveillance video of his run-in with two bears wandering around a house or complex, presumably his residence.

After seeing the bears as he rode past a car on a scooter, Clinton-Dix immediately turned around and sprinted away. The bears soon did the same thing, though they appeared to be more frightened by the hurtling scooter than Clinton-Dix.

A pretty understandable reaction.

Judging from his hashtags, Clinton-Dix escaped the situation unharmed. The timestamp in the video indicates this occurred Monday night.

Funnily enough, Clinton-Dix was playing for the Chicago Bears just last year after five seasons with the Green Bay Packers. He signed a one-year, $4 million contract with the Cowboys this offseason, one of many new additions on defense for a team with a new head coach in Mike McCarthy.
