Playful Bear Shows Off Soccer Skills in South Lake Tahoe

A boisterous black bear was filmed playing with a soccer ball near residential homes in South Lake Tahoe, California, on Sunday, July 3.

Video recorded by Teresa Potter shows the curious bear walk across a street to nudge the ball before quickly scurrying up a tree.

The energetic bear then repeatedly shifts its interests between the ball and surrounding trees. Credit: Teresa Potter via Storyful
