Bears can be intimidating because of their strength and their size, but they can also be adorable animals.We see a man who has had a black bear come and visit him for years bring her brand new cubs to meet him. It is such a sweet moment.
Black bears are reported to be very friendly with people in this region of America. The bear population is exploding in Asheville, North Carolina, and it appears they have settled with the natives. Starting in late summer 2017, an aries family started visiting Patrick Conley on a regular basis, almost becoming like family to him.
Patrick couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw the cubs and even wrote in the video’s description that they were the cutest things ever to walk these woods, but he is biased. Simone has become like a close friend to Patrick, so seeing these cubs is like seeing a new family member.
Simone is so comfortable she walks right onto the porch with the cubs following right behind. Making it even more obvious that Simone is extremely comfortable with Patrick and finds this human to be her friend, she walks onto his porch. The cubs are a little more cautious, considering they’ve never been here before, but they trust their mama. Eventually, all three bears are on the porch saying hello, and Patrick is just completely in awe.
It is amazing to see what is usually an animal that doesn’t interact with humans be so friendly. After some time, the three bears leave the porch and walk across the street to climb a tree for a little bit.
The cubs are acclimating to their new surroundings and enjoying their explorations. Both cubs dash to the nearest tree to climb and play with one another, while the mom bear waits close by. Simone informs her new cubs it’s time to go home after a period of exploring, climbing, and playing. The three return to the jungle to return home.
Patrick notes that Simone is looking well-fed, and considering how close they all got to him, they will be back soon, which he looks forward to.
If you want to see this man’s experience with these bears from the beginning, check out his YouTube channel. Luckily for us, we can watch Patrick’s journey with the bears from the beginning, and it’s an amazing journey to watch. The mother, now grandmother, a bear named Maïté, has three bears: her hefty son Maurice, shy Solange, and Simone.
Now Patrick has to come up with two more names for the brand new editions to the family. What a beautiful encounter with nature that got caught on film.
