Nail-biting video shows brown bear following child on family hike!

An Italian family's mountain hike took a hair-raising turn after a brown bear followed a child down a mountain path during a day out.

In a video of the nail-biting encounter in Trentino, northern Italy, 12-year-old Alessandro can be seen walking slowly towards his stepfather -- as brown bear follows closely behind.

The boy's stepfather can be heard trying to coax the boy to keep moving towards him, calling "come, come Ale" as they move slowly through the bushes and down the path while the bear creeps behind the boy.
