Nobody wants to wake up next to a figurative animal after  a hard night of partying or a nap, so imagine the horror of waking up with an actual animal in your face. 26-year-old John Steitz went on a hike with friends in Beaver Bay, MN and decided to take a nap. He says he had dreams of a dog jumping on him, scratching him and licking his face, but awoke to find that it was not a dog. No, it was a bear. Right in his grill.

Steitz says he leaned forward, and the bear backed up about five feet. He and his friend attempted to scare the animal off with a hatchet, pans and noise, but it simply walked away, glancing back occasionally. Clearly it had seen all that it needed to.
