If this doesn't make you want to put down that cellphone, we don't know what will.
Watch what happened as Los Angeles TV station KTLA was tracking a black bear as it wandered through a neighborhood in La Crescenta, Calif., Tuesday morning.
Local resident Vaz Terdandenyan almost walked right into the 400-pound animal.
He'd gone outside to see why a helicopter was hovering over the area, and "I was texting my boss that I would be late for work because something is going on," he told the station afterward.
"I'm coming down the stairs and I see the bear coming up the stairs toward me," Terdandenyan added. "I turned back and I ran for my life."
All we can say is OMG.
