Bombs Away: Bear Cub Uses Beaver Lodge for Diving Practice

A playful bear cub turned a beaver lodge into a diving platform, trail camera footage from central Massachusetts shows.

Bolton resident Janet Pesaturo, who writes for wildlife education website Winterberry Wildlife, stationed a trail camera at a beaver lodge after she noticed signs that beavers had been working on it.

Speaking to Storyful, Pesaturo said lodges attract many other forms of wildlife and she wasn’t surprised when she recovered footage of bears on the structure.

“It wasn’t too surprising to see bears checking it out, but I thought it was quite amusing to see the cub climb up on top and then jump back into the water,” she said. Credit: Janet Pesaturo via Storyful
