LOL! 25 Miles: the speed at which a polar bear can run.

Someone posted a very good question in the comments: who was taking those pictures?

That tripod leaning on the truck is quite heavy duty and looks like a Miller Fluid Head as used for a video camera. I wonder if someone has video of this show?

He was a surveyor. The tripod is probably from that.

Who took the photos is a good question. You would think some distraction could have been provided that would have helped the poor guy who was running around the trucks.

Surveyor 1 to Surveyor 2: "Hey Tom, look at that: there's a big f'ing bear chasing Bob around his truck -- get a camera!"

For those who might not know, Doc Nickel, a regular contributor on this site is a paintball gunsmith in addition to being a skilled machinist. He also puts out a very popular web comic three times a week chronicalling the adventures of his alter ego, a polar bear named Doc.
