A bear is going viral on TikTok for crashing a wedding.
Angie Disa, 25, recently attended her cousin’s wedding in Chipinque Ecological Park in Nuevo León, Mexico, as Disa explained in a TikTok posted on Sunday. She arrived on a Friday, and the wedding was on a Saturday.
Because the park is home to a mountain and forests, wedding guests were aware that there was wildlife nearby, Disa said in the same video.
“On Friday, we got to see a baby bear or two,” Disa said. But that would not be the last bear appearance of the weekend.
On Saturday, a larger bear came into the wedding reception as guests were eating dinner, as Disa documented in a TikTok.
The video, which had over 1.7 million views at the time of writing, shows the bear climbing onto a table and knocking over a centerpiece as loud crashing noises are heard off-screen.
He then crawls off the table, pushing down a chair in the process, and wanders past a group of people who remained sitting at their table. One man appears to eat his dinner as the bear walks by.
As Disa explained in a follow-up TikTok posted on Sunday, the staff told the guests not to move when the bear came into the reception.
Disa said in another TikTok that the venue staff had experience handling wild animals because there were so many in the area, so they knew how to guide the bear away. Representatives for Chipinque Ecological Park did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
If the guests had tried to intervene, it could have made the situation worse, according to Disa.
The staff made loud noises to scare the bear away while Disa and the other guests continued eating their food, as she said in her video.
“We thought the best thing that we could do is just stay calm, keep eating our food, and just wait for the staff to deal with the situation,” she said.
Disa also said that she and the other guests weren’t scared of the bear because he wasn’t too large.
“This bear was so cute,” she said. “We all just wanted to pet him.”
“He was harmless,” she added.
The staff ended up putting up a barricade so the bear could not come back into the venue, allowing the party to continue, as Disa explained in the video.
