Mama Bear Takes Her Cubs for a Playful Swim
Occurred in October 2021 / California, USA
Info from Licensor: "I was washing the dishes at home and heard loud splashing down at the river. I quickly looked out our kitchen window down towards our river spot and saw a mama bear playing with her 2 cubs in the water. She was pushing them underwater and splashing them and they were jumping on her, splashing her back. It was a relief to watch this happen because we had been under voluntary evacuation for a big wildfire - and that was very threatening to the wildlife and all the bears. I was so happy to see this it almost brought tears to my eyes."
