"I walked out there, and I turn around and I hear the sound -- and the bear's literally ten feet from me!" Aaron, safely in the studio, explained. "And I ran like I stole something, I'm not gonna lie!

"That was a big bear," he said of the mama. "And she didn't look very happy."

The crew stayed inside the building, watching from the windows. Eventually, a high-pitched alarm sounded, causing the bears to scurry out of the area.
