Terrifying, right? About 1,000 traffic jams take place at Yellowstone each year as tourists so willingly pull over to marvel at the fearless black bears at the park.

Thankfully, no one was injured in this recent bear encounter at Yellowstone. But let this be a lesson to all bear gawkers: if you’re going to pull over, lock your doors.
