Bear Cub Plays With Hammock in South Lake Tahoe, California

California resident Kurt Rix captured video of a bear cub playing with a hammock in his backyard in South Lake Tahoe on February 3.

Rix told Storyful he was first alerted to the bear’s presence after he heard his dog barking in the backyard and went out to look and see what was the problem.

“I see this bear cub sitting on his butt playing with the hammock,” Rix said. “I ran and grabbed my 400 mm zoom lens and filmed him playing for about 25 minutes. Bears are very common in Tahoe and frequently wander the neighborhoods.” Credit: Kurt Rix via Storyful
