A group of tourists in Montana found themselves dangerously close to a family of bears over the weekend. A black bear sow, seemingly attempting to protect her cubs, is seen pushing the large group of interlopers back across a bridge. Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks reports that the bears eventually made it safely back into the forest.

From the video, it is unclear whether the photographers approached the bears or vice versa. Regardless, Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks reminds park visitors: "Wildlife can be unpredictable. For your safety and theirs, respect wildlife and give them room to roam."

This video was shot by FWP videographer Winston Greely, who appears to be observing the scene from a safer distance.
