GARDINER, MT - A family of black bears gave these tourists a scare in Montana. It looks like the wildlife watchers got a little too close for comfort, and the mama and her cubs started running towards them.

The spectators seemed to make a few mistakes, according to the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Commission; you should stay at least 100 yards away from a bear.

And it's never a good idea to run away, it triggers a predator response.
