Yeah yeah…we all know that bears have the ability to completely rip you to shreds if they feel threatened enough, and they should be avoided at all costs for your own well-being (and their own).
However, as many terrifying stories as we hear about the creatures, we also hear equally as many about them just doing their best impressions of “guys being dudes.”
We’ve seen it time and time again. Bears that walk right into a house just because they smell pizza sitting on the counter, bears playing the piano, some that even peak their head inside a house just to say hello, and then quietly leave, and the list of examples go on and on.
Of course, none of these inspire me any further to befriend a bear, but it does shed some light on the curiosity and even kindness of the creatures.
And for our latest edition of “bears being dudes,” we’ve gotta good one.
In this video, it appears that security footage captured a black bear hanging out on the back deck of someone’s house, eyeballing a popular, and more importantly, easy source of food for bears… a bird feeder. But with this rather massive setup out of arms length, what’s a bear to do?
Sure enough, the bear leaps from the deck and grabs hold of the feeder, and slides down it like a fire pole. I must admit, this is a pretty impressive and ballsy leap, because I would’ve 100% ended up in the hospital if I tried to pull off this stunt.
Nevertheless, I think the bears is going to have to do a little more work to get to the seed.
