The two soldiers were out for a patrol from Fort Arltrees.
As they entered a small stand of trees, they came across a cute baby bear. They tossed it some cheese and then came close to pet its head.
Then the mama bear appeared.
As they fled for their lives, the soldier in front remembered something his cousin had told him as a child: "You don't need to run faster than the bear to get away, you just need to run faster than the guy behind you".
With this in mind, he tossed his musket aside and ran a little faster.
