A Chinese tourist has captured rare footage of a wild brown bear on the country's far western plains. But watch what happens when the bear comes a little too close for comfort.

For Mr. Quan it was a sight worth stopping for—a wild brown bear wandering near a highway in China's far-western province of Xinjiang.

But he had to quickly roll up his window as the bear charged at the car, threatening his safety.The bears are a protected species in China.

They're mostly seen in the mountains and forests of the northwest, but not on the plains.

The video was featured on state media. It became a hit with Chinese viewers.

Many people have few chances to see wildlife in modern China, where frenetic development has left environmental concerns by the wayside.
