Black bear family trashes backyard while dismayed children watch

Share This Story!

It’s tough finding fun activities for a family in the summer, especially if you have five kids. So we can relate to this black bear mother who brings the cubs by a local backyard in Rockaway Township, New Jersey. Thanks to an above-ground pool and plenty of toys, it’s the perfect summer destination for her little ones.

But before long, the cubs grow bored of the pool and start trashing the place while mom relaxes. They pop beach balls, mangle a floatie, and generally make a mess of the backyard. When they turn their attention to the swing set, the owner decides to call wildlife services.

Hopefully if the bear family returns in the future, they’ll at least bring a bottle of wine, or at least some delicious honey.
