An enjoyable excursion to Yellowstone National Park that a group of tourists had planned might have quickly turned into a nightmare when they were pursued by an enraged mother grizzly and her cubs. The experience took a terrifying turn when the people were forced to flee for their life since they came too near to the black bears.
Dramatic video footage released by Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks, shows the tourists running to their cars as the mother bear and her cubs follows them close behind. Fortunately, this time no one got hurt, but encounters like this could end up tragically.
“Go! Go!” “Keep moving,” the tourists say in the footage!
“They were in grave peril. According to Bob Gibson, manager of the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Communication and Education Program, between a mother bear and her cubs is the most perilous spot. “It might have been far worse if they had been born in the last few days.”
The moment may be seen here:
Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks encourage people to stay as far away as possible from wild animals, because “wildlife can be so unpredictable.” More, there are regulations that say that Yellowstone National Park visitors should “stay at least 100 yards away from bears.”
We should alway be aware that wild animals need to be treated with the upmost respect!
According to Jack Hanna, emeritus director of the Columbus Zoo, “It’s a wonderful animal we can all appreciate. It’s their habitat.” Simply respect them and keep your distance while filming them.
