(Scroll down for video) A woman of Tennessee, said that she was very scared when a large black bear came to her and licked her neck from behind while she was doing exercise by a lake.

Kristen Jones was visiting her parents in Lake James North Carolina, when she decided to watch the sunrise by the lake on Tuesday.

Jones said that she enjoyed yoga while watching the sunrise.

She was sitting on the steps with her feet propped in the water listening to Ray Lamontagne, when she felt a sniff on her right shoulder and a lick up her neck.

She reached up to pet the animal, which she assumed was a neighbor's dog, only to discover it was a bear. She stumbled backwards into the water and the bear ran up the hill.

Jones immediately started taking photos of the bear, just in case it decides to kill her and people find her mauled body. She followed the bear from behind until she got to the street, and watched the bear go back into the woods.

Jones then warned the neighbors about the bear.
