Samantha Brooks shared this video showing several grizzly bears on Tuesday morning.

In a Facebook post, Samantha wrote: “I went out to check a mare in foal, who’s due any day now, and got a little surprise! They wandered up about 200’ behind the house. #toocloseforcomfort ”

She added: “The oddest part was when the horses actually noticed the bears they started chasing them like curious yearling steers, and the pregnant mare was leading the charge! Perhaps she likes to live life on the edge!”
