Family of Bears Have a Gala Time On a Trampoline: 'A Day at the Park'
While we were working our pants off, a group of bears enjoyed a lazy afternoon on a trampoline in Farmington, Connecticut. A resident, Olivia Germano, witnessed a "beary" adorable moment in her backyard. The original video taken by the homeowner on April 7 showed five bears lounging casually and having fun. It seems like bears have taken over people's backyards, patios, and gardens. Germano mentioned that these bears are regular visitors and uploaded the video on Facebook with the caption, "Another visit." The video is as cute as it can get, but it is always preferred to maintain a safe distance while watching them play.
The aww-dorable video went viral because it's difficult to resist the sight. A somewhat "family play date" that happened in Germano's backyard has garnered love and attention from social media users. The bears are bouncing, jumping and bumping into each other. Some are just relaxing on the trampoline while others are showing childlike excitement.
The homeowner frequently posts photos and videos of the furry animals on her profile. A Facebook user, @Cheyenne Rhodes, wrote, "Getting their cardio in for the day. LOL." Another user, @Suzanne Mantei, commented, "That's a good looking family." Hahaha! We agree. @Milli Arnold wrote, "They are so beautiful And if left alone cause no problems." Bears are more fun-loving and less dangerous. There have been many instances in the past where people encountered bears in their vicinity. And they are also caught doing surprisingly amusing things on camera. They are often cute and funny to watch when they are going on about their activities.
If you recall from last month, a bear was captured scratching its back outside a home in Asheville, North Carolina. The video on TikTok went viral in no time, gaining millions of views. Another "beary" cute incident was documented earlier this year. The City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) said a bear discovered a camera that the agency uses to monitor wildlife across Boulder Colorado's parks. OSMP reported on Twitter, "Of the 580 photos captured, about 400 were bear selfies." Hilarious!!
Recently, a bear discovered a wildlife camera that we use to monitor wildlife across #Boulder open space. Of the 580 photos captured, about 400 were bear selfies.🤣 Read more about we use wildlife cameras to observe sensitive wildlife habitats. https://t.co/1hmLB3MHlU pic.twitter.com/714BELWK6c— Boulder OSMP (@boulderosmp) January 23, 2023
But why do bears leave the wild and break into our private spaces? According to National Park Service (NPS), "Bears aren't restricted to living in parks—their home range can span a few square miles up to several hundred! As they move, they cross park boundaries into neighboring lands and gateway communities... Bears on private property can cause damage and become dangerous not only to you but also to the bear itself. Please do your part to keep bears wild by following these general guidelines. Do not feed bears, keep garbage out of reach, store pet food properly, use bird feeders wisely, and never approach a bear."
