A mama bear and three cubs interrupted a live newscast in Scranton, Pa., Monday, just as meteorologist Kurt Aaron went to deliver his forecast outside the studio.

Tonight … partly cloudy with a 100 percent chance of cute/scary!

Bears Interrupt Weather Report

“I walked out there, and I turn around and I hear the sound … and the bear’s literally 10 feet away from me!” Aaron explained, once he got back in the studio.

“And I ran like I stole something, I’m not gonna lie! That was a big bear,” he said of the cubs’ protective mother. “And she didn’t look very happy with me.”

The crew stayed inside the studio, watching from the window. Eventually, a high-pitched alarm sounded, causing the bears to scurry away harmlessly.
