Casually strolling down the streets of South Lake Tahoe, a mother black bear and her two cubs appear to not have a care in the world. Not knocking over trash bins, or charging through doors, the family unit can been seen on video captured by Fox 40 living that easy life as they nibble on "lush, spring grasses."
"This is their home," explained Toogee Sielsch, a wildlife educator with The Bear League. "They're moving through their corridors of travel, but we live here now. So it's part of our jobs to enjoy them being there, and try not to bother them."
The video shows bears that do no look bothered. Indeed, at one point the cubs appear to be almost skipping.
“They’re so fun to watch,” neighbor Tammy Hoy told the channel as she observed the bears. “We’ve never seen a mama with babies that small.”
