There are few other animals who love to play as freely and recklessly as bear cubs do. While these adorable creatures usually prefer to go loose when they stumble upon a puddle or an open field, as it turns out, they don’t shy away from playing like human children do, too. Just look at these 5 adorable cubs who wandered into someone’s backyard and promptly started playing with their swingset. “This was taken in our backyard. It is supposedly a mom and five cubs, two of which are suspected to be adopted from a different litter,” said the person who spotted this joyful bear family.
Recently, a family from Asheville captured an adorable video of a mama bear and her 5 cubs visiting their backyard swingset
The video was captured in Asheville, North Carolina, a city that’s known for its big black bear population. It is estimated that there are from 100 to 200 bears year-round among the population of 90,000 humans. Unsurprisingly, residents of Asheville have had plenty of encounters with these bears roaming through their backyards and having a snack from their dumpsters.
As it turns out, bear cubs love to invade human backyards and play with whatever they find out there
Clearly, this particular bear family from the video is not an isolated event. These animals don’t refrain from visiting people’s backyards in the hope of having a great time in their pools, on their hammocks, and of course, searching for food that has been left out in the open.
If you live in areas heavily populated with black bears, don’t be surprised if you find them swinging in your hammock
While it could seem scary to live in an area heavily populated by these bears, it turns out that they are quite timid. Black bears can easily be chased away by anyone, even the smallest dog can do the trick. According to North American Bear Center researchers, they have never seen a black bear they couldn’t chase away.
