Acrobatic Bear Goes For Bird Feeder
Occurred on August 7, 2022 / Westcliffe, Colorado, USA
Info from Licensor: "I woke up early Sunday morning to enjoy the view when I looked up on the hillside and saw a brown fuzzy animal making some commotion. I chuckled to myself, thinking "That is a really fat deer!" – when all of a sudden it stood up, and it was a bear! I ran inside to wake up my husband and kids so they could see it. When we came back out to the porch (leaving the cabin door open in case we need to make a quick escape), the bear started to crawl down the hill towards the cabin with two cute little cubs following right behind her. When it got to the tree, which was about 30 feet from where we were watching on the porch, it tried to reach the bird feeder, but to no avail. She decided to climb it with the cubs following suit. After making several acrobatic moves to get to the bird feeder, she finally climbed out on the branch upside down, bending it toward the ground. The branch broke, and she and her cubs were able to get the bird seed."
