Bear Cubs Play With Rope Swing, Heartstrings

It would be profoundly unethical of us to see this video and not present it to you, the general public, as a useful instruction guide to bringing adorable animals closer to your home. Of course, they may eventually maul you, but for now, awwwwwww!

The video was taken by YouTube user pennywhelan in her backyard and shows a family of bears playing with the rope swings she has out back. Whelan simply kept quiet and filmed the footage while the bears played.

This actually is fairly common. Black bears are an exceptionally playful species, especially when young, and often are found playing with backyard swings and other items. In fact, bears will even sleep in hammocks.

And do they ever pay rent?
