30 People Share The Hilarious Times They Caught Bears Acting More Like Humans

Gigantic animals are typically deemed as majestic, mighty, and sometimes terrifying. But if there’s one gigantic animal that also belongs to the ‘cute’ category, it’s the bear. So, we’re bringing you a list of funny bear photos to show you the irresistible cuteness of these large mammals.

The largest land-based mammals remaining on this planet, bears can grow as big as 8 feet long and weigh more than a thousand pounds. But despite their intimidating size, these furry giants are often depicted as adorable and cuddly characters in pop culture. Winnie the Pooh, Yogi, Baloo, Foozie, Po – these famous pop culture characters are so well-loved due to their endearing and friendly qualities. But in reality, bears are solitary creatures and are not sociable.

Although they are not necessarily aggressive, the possibility of a bear attack can happen if they feel they are threatened by human presence. So, nope, you can’t casually approach a bear and hang out with them just like Christopher Robin and Winnie the Pooh. In some cases, bears would come out of their natural habitat and wander into town for a reason. They are likely to roam into neighborhoods to forage for food. Another reason is loss of habitat due to deforestation and other threats such as poaching and illegal wildlife trade.

In addition to these reasons, bears will also move into human territory when they need a change of pace. Besides, they are just like us – they also get bored of their mundane environment. So when boredom strikes, they also tend to venture into a new domain for a change. Some people were lucky enough to spot these fuzzy creatures trying to adapt to city living. And these funny photos reveal how cute they can be when they try to act like humans.
