When Snowboarder Kelly Murphy began to film herself riding down the slopes of the Hakuba 47 winter resort in Japan, she didn't realise the footage would later reveal that a giant bear was chasing her down.

The video circulating online shows the snowboarder happily singing along to Rihanna's single "Work", unaware that the bear was dangerously close behind.
