WEAVERVILLE, N.C., May 24 (UPI) -- A family in North Carolina encountered a group of bears while driving along a heavily wooded road.
Video shared to Facebook by Marietta E. Cameron shows the group of five bears wandering about on the road as the family stops and waits for them to clear out.
One bear can be seen walking towards the stopped car before quickly scurrying away back to the pack.
After some time a group of cyclists approached from the opposite lane, prompting two of the bears to stand on their hind legs.
More cars began to pile up behind the cyclists before the bears ultimately made their way back into the forest.
While Cameron expressed that she was concerned for the cyclists, but none were harmed during the encounter.
Once the area was cleared the family continued to drive forward as the driver shouted across to the other lane, jokingly thanking the cyclists and other drivers for seemingly scaring the bears away.
