He can "bear-ly" contain his excitement.

Tom Brady had a close encounter with a bear on Wednesday — and not the Chicago Bear variety.

The Patriots quarterback shared an Instagram video of a bear moving around in the trees not far from where the quarterback himself was standing. Brady reacted with an enthusiastic but whispered, “There’s a bear!” while someone off-camera made loud clapping sounds, presumably to scare the bear off.

Brady has been in Montana with other members of his family, celebrating his mother’s birthday, which was on the Fourth of July. On Wednesday, he also posted a photo on Instagram dedicated to his mom.


“Happy 4th of July and Happy Birthday to the best Mom a son could ask for! ????✨?,” Brady wrote in the caption.
