Little Boy Freaks Out After Hearing GPS Say 'Bear Right'

Austin thought a potentially killer beast was waiting outside the car.

A video of an adorable little boy panicking after hearing his family's GPS say "bear right" is going viral.

Austin confused the device's navigational instruction for a warning that there was an actual bear to the right of their car, as they arrived at a zoo in Colorado Springs.

Footage posted to YouTube shows the boy telling his mom and dad that they "have a problem."

When they ask what kind, he replies fearfully, "a bear problem!"

Austin and his sister Abby explain how they heard the TomTom GPS saying "bear right" -- and they fear one of the potentially killer beasts is either inside the car or just outside.

Their mom explains that there is no bear, but Austin is just too scared and ends up bursting into tears, as his sister describes the animal as "mean."

After much convincing from his parents, Austin eventually calms down enough to declare that he's ready to get out of the car and go to the zoo.

YouTube user Chip Golden said the footage was actually filmed 7 years ago in 2009, but he only posted the clip to YouTube last Thursday.

The Huffington Post has reached out for further information.
