Rescue Bears Have a Blast Playing With Cardboard Box at New York Sanctuary

Turns out, it’s not just cats and babies that get a kick out of an empty cardboard box, as this video of rescue bears playing with packaging at a New York sanctuary shows.

Footage posted by the Orphaned Wildlife Center, located in Otisville, New York, shows a couple of its resident bears sniffing around the box.

The box initially has a co-founder of the sanctuary, Jim Kowalczik, underneath it, but he sensibly leaves them to play with it after a few minutes.

One bear takes a particular shine to the box, throwing it around, chewing on it, and eventually flattening it.

The Orphaned Wildlife Center nurtures orphaned animals, in the hope they can be returned to the wild. The center often shares videos and updates about the animals in its care to its YouTube channel and Facebook page. Credit: Kerry Clair via Storyful
