Black Bear Climbs Up Porch, Pulls Off Amazing Flying Leap into Tree
Somebody say Yogi this Boo booHe’s grown up and is quite an athletic bear – he’s here doing his own amazing flight stunts! Those picnic baskets paid off, eh?
A family in Maggie Valley, North Carolina captured this incredible scene of a black bear cub pulling himself up on their patio – which appears to be quite high off the ground – balancing on the narrow wooden beam … and doing a clean getaway when he notices he’s been spotted.
Melissa Howell said as soon as the bear – whom she and her husband came to know as Boo Boo – realized it was in front of the camera, he immediately jumped from the bridge to a tree several meters away distance! Literally, a flying bear … for a second, anyway.
Boo Boo quickly rushed down the tree without skipping a beat, and gave us all a quick refresher on the bears’ ability to climb. And, apparently, jump too.
It also proves that bears are super curious creatures and can be quite cheeky in front of humans. Take a look at this brown bear from SoCal who recently wandered into someone’s yard to cool off in their pool. The family tried to chase her away, but it took their time … probably because they know no one is going to come out and play with her.
The bears, man … they run the show.
