The softer side of bears…

When we hear the word “bear” we might think of hunting a big grizzly, bear attacks, or how we would never want to encounter one in the wild, at least not without a firearm handy

But like humans, or puppies, they have a soft side.

In no particular order, here are 30 bear pictures that will make you smile, warm your heart, and have you bear hugging someone before the end of the day.
