Sept. 27 (UPI) -- A bear crashed a picnic in Mexico and climbed up to feast on the meal while a mother and her son sat on the bench inches away.

The video, posted to TikTok by Silvia Macias, shows the bear eating food from the table at Chipinque, a park in San Pedro Garza Garcias, while Macias and her son, Santiago, are seated on the bench.


Macias holds Santiago into her shoulder and covers his eyes to keep him calm. The mother explained Santiago, 15, has Down syndrome and is afraid of animals, even those less dangerous than bears.

The bear eventually wandered away after eating its fill.

Macias credited her experiences as a midwife and a yoga instructor for her ability to keep her cool with the bear only inches away.
