This sight of "nature doing its thing" is something that should not have been witnessed by these youngsters. However, it is a risk one takes when having a birthday party at a zoo.

Here’s what the internet had to say about this viral incident: 

  • “Children’s birthday party interrupts bears dinner”
  • “Why did the parents let the kids watch?”
  • “Hahahaha the trauma”
  • “It’s the circle of life”
  • “Why would they put ducks together with bears??”

REVEALED: Is this TikToker actually a robot?
