Michael Bublé has recalled a close encounter with "aggressive" polar bears.

During an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show on Tuesday, the hitmaker revealed he almost came face-to-face with a polar bear while in Canada with Saving Private Ryan actor Berry Pepper.

"I think, in the moment, we're like, 'You know what we should do? We should like race down the beach.' And so me and him and another guy came running down this beach, and a guy that lived there just started swearing," Michael recalled in the interview.

"(He was) literally swearing at us and just screaming - I mean screaming bloody murder," the 48-year-old continued.

The Home hitmaker explained that the man had been trying to alert them about the polar bears which were on the beach.

"We didn't realize, we were running to our certain death," Michael told the chat show host. "Because there were polar bears all down the beach. And yes, they're the most aggressive - but God they're so cuddly."

The Canadian singer admitted he still thinks about the near-fatal incident from time to time.

"Sometimes I wonder about that, how close I was to being like a little polar bear lunch," he said with a laugh.

Kelly added, "Who would've thought there were just polar bears - nobody ever hears that. 'Oh, there's polar bears hanging on the beach.' It just doesn't happen."
