The New England Patriots quarterback shared an Instagram video on Wednesday of an actual bear at the edge of the woods during his trip to Montana.
"There's a bear!" whispered a wide-eyed Brady, who was a safe distance away from the animal before it wandered off.
Brady was in Montana with other members of his family celebrating his mother's birthday.
The 40-year-old Brady will have another encounter with a bear -- several of them, actually -- in Week 7 when the Patriots visit Soldier Field in Chicago.
