‘Oh My Gosh!’ Black Bear Mom and Her 4 Yearlings Cross the Road

What’s the best catchphrase to use when watching five black bears cross the road in front of you? For this North Carolina woman, it’s “Oh my gosh!”

A Banner Elk, North Carolina mother and her son received quite a surprise as they made their way home from the grocery store on the morning of May 15. Grandfather Mountain volunteer coordinator Lesley Platek’s son Travis shot the video, which shows a mother black bear and her four yearlings cross a busy road and scramble up a wooded bank.

The video is quite amazing to watch, but adding to the excitement is a certain catchphrase Lesley Platek repeats.

“Oh my gosh!”

Definitely a memorable moment for this mother and son – and a viral video that perfectly captures Platek’s favorite phrase to say!
