(CNN) -

A family of black bears gave some tourists a scare in Montana.

The wildlife watchers appeared to have gotten a little too close for comfort, and the mother bear and her cubs started running toward them.

The spectators seemed to make a few mistakes.

According to the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Commission, tourists should stay at least 100 yards away from a bear.

It is never a good idea to run away, as it triggers a predator response.
