This bear video went viral on social media last week. But a closer look at the seemingly innocent video made animal lovers all over the world furious. The bears had been intentionally frightened. This is what happened.
A video appeared on the YouTube channel ViralHog. In the video, a brown bear and her baby face the difficult task of climbing up a snow covered cliff, and it doesn't go that easy. The video went viral, spreading a message of determination and bravery; 'never give up, keep trying!'
As inspiring as the message is, the video turned out to be quite the opposite of encouraging. After a closer look, animal activist discovered a drone filmed the two bears. The bears were probably so scared of the drone that they tried to escape and eventually found themselves in this dangerous position.
