Brown Bear Befriends Contractor
Occurred on October 19, 2021 / South Lake Tahoe, California, USA
Info from Licensor: "I captured this moment of me putting the nose of a small brown bear in the South Lake Tahoe region during a recent snowstorm. I work as a contractor, and I was doing fuelling for equipment late at night when I saw fresh bear tracks in the snow. I followed them and saw this small brown bear in bushes, and it was comfortable with me, enough to let me get right up to it. I had some snacks in my hand, which also must of let me get that close. After I gave the bear some snacks, it wandered off into the snow."
