Black bears are serious business – unless they are playing.

Even the mighty black bear enjoys a little down time now and then.

Watch this mother black bear at play with her cubs.

 

These black bears are having a great time in a suburban Vermont backyard.

The mother bear is playfully pouncing on her two cubs, and in turn, they are learning through play. They learn many bear behaviors like how to pounce and how to swat using their paws just like mama bear.

Bears are quite the apex predators, but this video shows the lighter side of these eating machines.

Remember: If you see a bear, leave it alone. They can and will, on occasion, attack humans and will not play with you like this.
