What We Love: Close-Ups Of Curious Bears

Funny video captured in Malahat Territory gives bears eye view a whole new meaning

Black Bear gots its paws on a game camera resulting in some fantastic footage..right up its nose

Vancouver Field Naturalist member Rick C West shared this hilarious video of a curious bear getting up close and personal with his game camera.

Rest assured – the camera survived the ordeal. “Had a few chew marks and a broken lens but was easily repaired,” he said.

What made the bear so interested is up for debate.

“Some black bears must be attracted by a possible human smell or the interesting object within their range … or don’t want to be videoed.”

Either way, it definitely makes for some funny footage!
