“Greetings from Central Florida,” says Kristin L. First, here are some photos of a mama and three adorable baby bears that appeared in my back yard.”

“They got big pretty quickly, and just four months later the cubs were able to pull down the bird feeder all on their own.”

  1. Aww, I want a fountain and bird feeder to lure bears into my yard too.

  2. They look like little kids in fur suits!

    Fabulous pic! What a great shot!

  4. This is so cool! 🙂

  5. Great pics and very exciting, but also potentially dangerous. I hope they took down the bird feeders and scared the bears away, which is recommended by wildlife authorities to protect both the bears and the people.

  6. I think my head is gonna explode from cuteness! And jealousy!!!!!

    What Emmm said. They are INCREDIBLY cute, but it is very, very, VERY important not to teach local bears that food is available near your house. Birdseed, dog food, garbage, or anything else a bear might eat needs to be put securely away at all times if you live in bear country. That means not even feeding birds until the bears have gone to sleep for the winter. Bears are not slavering furry orcs seeking to indulge their craving for man-flesh; 99 bears will just boogie on through, providing photo ops. However, they are complex animals, and when they have a bad mood everybody suffers. The 100th bear will decide to get nasty–and you have no idea which number that bear in your back yard is. And you really, really don’t want to find out. So don’t make your surroundings attractive to bears.

  8. Didn’t realize Florida had bears- I learned something new from this post. 🙂

  9. I’d be in trouble because I’d want to leave out cookies and stuff for them!:)

  10. So adorable!
