Clinton-Dix, who is a recent addition to the new-look Cowboys ahead of the start of the 2020 NFL season, posted incredible footage to his Instagram account showing security camera footage of the incident.

The clip shows the 27-year-old Pro Bowl safety riding past a parked car before he notices a bear and (presumably) its cub prowling the car park. Clinton-Dix immediately showcases some of the speed that has made him a defensive stalwart in the league for the past six seasons, as he abandons his scooter and sprints away from the potential danger.

I play D, gotta be ready to go,” Clinton-Dix wrote in a message accompanying the clip, which appears to have been recorded on Monday night. “A lil high on my flip turn but the drive was there. I ain’t know how many was over there.”

It seems as though the two bears were just as alarmed as Clinton-Dix was, as the pair high-tails it in the opposite direction of the Cowboys star. 

Somewhat coincidentally, Clinton-Dix spent the 2019 season as a member of the Chicago Bears where he recorded 78 combined tackles throughout the term. He has since signed a one-year, $4 million deal with the Dallas Cowboys as the team’s new head coach Mike McCarthy oversees a player overhaul in Texas.

McCarthy, though, will surely be hoping that his new charge doesn’t have quite the same reaction to the Bears should the two teams meet next season.
