Bear Cubs Play Fight in Adorable Footage From South Lake Tahoe

A pair of bear cubs were caught on camera having a friendly tussle, footage from South Lake Tahoe, California, shows.

In the video, shared to Instagram on September 1 by local nature enthusiast Toogee Sielsch, the bears can be seen grappling with each other, or “wrasslin” as Sielsch puts it.

Captured on a trailcam, Sieslsch wrote that “a barrel full of monkeys ain’t got nothin’ on two South Lake Tahoe cubs of the year wrasslin’. That’s fun squared.” Credit: Toogee Sielsch via Storyful
