Going out for a hike can be a lot of fun. Nature hikes allow us to get in touch with the world around us and we are also able to learn more about the animals that we share the planet with. As a result, we are also able to see events that unfold naturally, events that we would not normally see during our everyday lives.
Jeff Molyneaux recently to Yosemite National Park in California, where he enjoyed a hike in Hetch Hetchy Valley. While he had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed his trip, there was no way for him to know about what would happen next.
As he was on his way back from the hike, he came across a rare and interesting sight. Two little bear cubs were blocking the road and had chosen his route as the spot for their play fight. No need to worry, viewers at home, these two bears aren’t really fighting. And luckily for us, Jeff thought quickly and began to record the scene as it unfolded in front of him.
Some might have been nervous, but not Jeff. He was able to keep a steady hand and record as much of the “scuffle” as possible. Those who have brothers and sisters of our own can certainly relate to this clip, as most of us have been in our fair share of play fights ourselves. Watching the video just might take you all the way back to childhood.
The feeling that we get from watching these tiny little fellas roughhousing with each other is simply too adorable to put into words.
They almost remind us of puppies! To make matters even funnier (and more cute), their mother is hanging back in the brush, serving almost as an unofficial referee of sorts. She is there to make sure that their play does not get too far out of hand.
This is one of the more astonishing sights that we have ever had the privilege of witnessing and if you’d like to see more of these hilarious hi-jinx, be sure to watch Jeff’s video in its full entirety.
The bears eventually reach a point where fighting is no longer fun and retreat back to their mother’s embrace. If you enjoyed this clip as much as we did, then take a moment to spread the love and pass it along to your friends and loved ones.
