Brawling Bear Cubs Wrestle in Fresh South Lake Tahoe Snow

A bear and two cubs were filmed in a snowy yard in South Lake Tahoe, California, on Tuesday, November 1.

Video recorded by Jeff Moore shows two playful cubs wrestling with each other in fresh snow, while a “momma bear” carefully observed.

Moore told Storyful that the larger bear could be heard “grunting” at the cubs as if to tell them to “get out of the tree”. Credit: Jeff Moore via Storyful
