These Montana Tourists Most Probably Definitely Got Too Close To These Bears


Posted on May 10, 2015, at 11:23 a.m. ET

Just in time for Mother's Day, Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks has shared some crazy video of a mommy bear chasing some tourists away from her cubs on a bridge near the town of Gardiner.

As the video starts, we see a group of tourists ambling slowly away from the black bear sow and her babies.

Surprise, surprise...once the bears pick up their pace, the tourists do too.

The bridge is full of people with expensive cameras which will no doubt be delicious.

"Keep going! Go! Go! Go!" someone helpfully screams.

A little girl can be heard crying as the tourists scramble back into their cars.

This dude thinks now is the right time to try to snap another picture.

The bridge is emptied. The bears have won.

As the Montana wildlife officials make clear, this is all actually pretty dangerous:

It serves as a reminder that wildlife can be unpredictable. For your safety and theirs, respect wildlife and give them room to roam.

View and photograph from established observation areas. Stay a safe distance to reduce stress on wildlife. Luckily, no one was hurt and these bears made it safely back to the forest.

Y'all don't come back now, ya hear?
