Black Bear Climbs To The Top Of A Tree To Raid An Eagle’s Nest

Is this real life?

I’ve never seen something like this before.

Or even heard of it for that matter…

Black bears are a curious animal. Their curiosity comes from one thing only; wanting to find food. They will do just about anything for it and really show their intelligence when it comes to finding some.

Black bears are seen time and time again breaking into cars, garbage cans and chasing anything that could be considered edible.

They are also known to get creative when looking for food sources if there isn’t much around for them, especially the younger bears. That doesn’t mean climbing a tree and raiding the nest of an animal like an eagle is common.

Some anglers where out for a fish in Canada when they came across a bear starting to climb up the base of a tree that housed an eagle nest. The eagles were present and begin to freak out as they realize what is happening.

As the bear shimmies up the tree, the eagles swoop in and out wondering what they can do to stop it.

“This is the most ****ing sickest thing ever, boys!”

He’s not wrong, this is one of those things that just don’t happen and the odds of seeing it happen are even lower.

And we all know that black bears are skilled climbers, but to scale all to the way to the top to raid an eagle’s nest? Wild.

The eagles team up and start hitting the bear as it gets to the top. The bear just ignores their attacks and climbs is way right into the nest. He can be seen grabbing what one can only assume to are the eagles’ young for a quick meal.

The bear quickly gets out of the tree top and back down to the ground.

“Nature has no mercy”

Another very true statement.

That’s one they will be talking about every time they have a few drinks for a long time.
