VIDEO: Watch as Momma Bear and 3 Cubs Chase Tourists in Yellowstone

Caught on video, a phalanx of tourists with cameras were snapping away but a mamma bear in Yellowstone National Park wasn’t having it and began chasing off the photo snappers. In the process the momma black bear scared the pants off the whole crew of them.

The video shows the tourists trying to carefully avoid the black bears. It may have looked funny, but the park reports that the tourists were, indeed, in danger of a mauling.

“These tourists were absolutely in danger,” Bob Gibson, Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks Communication & Education Program Manager, told NBC News. “Black bears are usually shy of people. But you put them with their cubs and they get really protective. You never want to be between a bear and its cub.”

Still, it is a bit funny to see everyone scramble, isn’t it?
