How close do you think you could get to a mama bear who has cubs with her and live to tell about it? This video will probably give you a good idea.

NBC Montana shared this amazing close-up video of a mama bear who was walking down a road in Gardner, Montana with her cubs.

I love bears, but have only seen one in real life and that was around 200 yards away when my family visited Glacier National Park a few years ago.

As Bear Smart mentions, a mama bear with cubs may act aggressively if they believe you are a threat. This mama seems to be content to just walk on by and  the guy who captured the video was smart to let her do it.
