Samantha said she wasn’t afraid of the “little baby bear,” which ran off amid the commotion, but feared that the mother could’ve been lurking nearby.

“I didn’t know where the mom was and didn’t know how she’d feel about two humans running towards her baby,” said Samantha.

Samantha said she is now educating her child about wildlife.

“I did tell her the bear was dangerous, and we’ve been watching National Geographic,” she said.

She added that she plans to child-proof the patio door to prevent future incidents.
