Curious Cub Peeks in Car Window

Occurred on May 18, 2019 / Denali National Park, Alaska, USA

Info from Licensor: "My husband and I live in Alaska and were driving through Denali National Park on an evening drive and came upon some vehicles that were all gathered together. We could see the bears coming so we thought we would turn off the car and just watch them. It was amazing watching mama bear guide her young ones through the vehicles. We thought she would leave the road but she walked right past our vehicle. When they got so close to us I tried rolling my window up while I was filming I didn’t think they would get that close. Because the car had been off for so long it had timed out and the window would not roll up. When I could hear the nails of the bears hitting the pavement I really wanted my window up. You can tell in the video when my camera went up a bit I was checking to see if I was using the right button on the car. Then I realized that the car had timed out. Then the little one came over and stood up! It was amazing and scary at the same time. All I kept thinking was “Follow mama don’t climb in.” The cub was probably thinking “Mama, this one, can I eat this one.” Anyway, the cub continued with mama and just a few feet past our vehicle they went off the road and into the tundra. It was amazing!"
