Bears get a lot of bad press. But who can resist this mama bear playing with her cub? And what a cub. Scientists aren’t sure if the cub is an albino, or if it is a rare type of bear. One thing for sure: it is very cute! And though baby animals are without fail darling, these short videos, showing the mothers with their babies, playing or setting vigil, are a touching reminder of the other side of the big bad bear stories.
It should be no surprise that this mother enjoys her little one. Or the heartbreaking patience the mother bear shows in the second video. Mammals. Like us.
Enjoy the videos. But if you are hiking in bear country, keep your distance from the bears. While they are like us, they definitely don’t like us.
