Sarah Palin came face to face with a real, live wild bear -- and its two cute little baby cubs -- during a fishing trip at Wolverine Creek, Alaska earlier this month ... and didn't shoot it!
Along with the wildlife, Sarah also kicked it with her husband Todd and daughter Piper.
Check out the photos -- pretty bad ass.
