CAUGHT ON VIDEO: Mama bear and 4 cubs cross NC road

BANNER ELK, N.C. (WSPA) — A mama bear and her cubs were spotted in downtown Banner Elk on Sunday.

Grandfather Mountain volunteer coordinator Lesley Platek and her son, Travis, got more than the bear necessities from the grocery store, when, on the way home, they encountered a mama bear and her four yearlings in downtown.

The mama bear is seen crossing the road first and then the 4 cubs cross.

The Platek’s dog in the car can be heard growling and barking at the bears on the video, which has more than 500,000 views as of Monday afternoon.
