Watch a trio of black bear cubs climb trees with the ease of monkeys

Pro tip: Don’t try to outrun a bear — even a tiny bear cub — by climbing a tree.

The Alberta Conservation Association has captured a pretty incredible video of three fleet-footed black bear cubs, which clamour up a tree within seconds of their mother urging them to make the leap.

The incredible video was just posted a couple of days ago.


The mother bear is only on the motion sensor camera for a few seconds before revealing three cubs following close behind.


Then you hear a click and witness an amazing display of agility. According to the conservation association, the “three cubs are commanded by mom to retreat into the trees.”
