    Contrary to what a viral video suggests, it’s unrelated to the pandemic.There was recently a video circulating on Twitter that can only be described as shockingly cute. Made viral by the Austin-based science communicator Joe Hanson, the clip shows two black bear cubs wrestling on the patio of the Chisos Mountains Lodge at Big Bend National Park, teetering like toddlers covered in fur. The camera pans to reveal their mother, staring into the distance with what looks like an apathetic glare. And as if that wasn’t enough, the camera captures a third cub sitting in a bucket. It’s the exact...

    Just a few images to lighten things up In this series of photos, you will see a polar bear come upon some sled dogs tethered to a stake. Oh boy, Normally you would think that a dog tethered to a stake would be lunch for a polar bear, but these pictures tell a completely different story. Nothing like playing with a new found friend From what I can see, the polar bear just wanted to play and get a little brotherly love. The professional photographer who took these photos said the bear came back every night that week to play...

    Jay Cutler is endorsing President Donald Trump. The former Chicago Bears player, 37, reposted golfer Jack Nicklaus’s letter in support of Trump that described how “disappointed” he had become at the criticism the current president has faced and captioned it, “Never a doubt.” “He has delivered on his promises. He’s worked for the average person,” Nicklaus wrote in his letter. “In my opinion, he has been more diverse than any President I have seen and has tried to help people from all walks of life—equally.”

    Gale Sayers, one of the most electric NFL players of the 1960s and early 1970s, has died. He was 77 years old. The Pro Football Hall of Famer was a brilliant running back and returner who spent only seven years in the league, all with the Chicago Bears, from 1965 to 1971. “The NFL family lost a true friend today with the passing of Gale Sayers,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement. “Gale was one of the finest men in NFL history and one of the game's most exciting players. Gale was an electrifying and elusive runner who...

    Former NFL coach Mike Ditka had a lot to say about the NFL players who plan to take a knee during the national anthem. He simply doesn’t care for it and he suggests anyone who’s taking a knee for the national anthem may as well get out of the country. But don’t listen to me. Take it from the man himself as quoted by TMZ: “If you can’t respect our national anthem, get the hell out of the country. That’s the way I feel. Of course, I’m old fashioned, so I’m only going to say what I feel. You don’t...

    In a March 15, 2020 article about a bear encounter by Caroline Wellbery, a bear biologist makes a hyperbolic claim. It is not unusual for people to make hyperbolic claims about bears, which are not founded in facts or data. It is irresponsible for experts in the field to do so. From the There is a bigger chance of getting hit twice by lightning, Craighead says, than being mauled by a bear. As with any statistical assessment, it depends on a number of assumptions. If you are talking about the United States as a whole, Craighead's claim is...

    The Chicago Bears traded up for Mitchell Trubisky just a few years ago, but the franchise has since realized he may not be the long-term answer. That became crystal clear once Chicago traded for Nick Foles this offseason. Now comes further proof, as ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports the belief around the league is the Bears won’t pick up Trubisky’s fifth-year option. Schefter notes there has been no official word from the Bears and that Chicago has until May 4 to make the decision. If the Bears do decide to pick up the fifth-year option on Trubisky, it would cost over...

    WASHINGTON, D.C.—As if Americans haven’t had enough bad news, there are now reports of a huge disaster in the making. Apparently President Donald Trump has started watching the documentary Tiger King on Netflix and has purchased seventeen tigers, which are currently roaming the White House. “This is worse than when he watched that Michael Bay Ninja Turtles movie and ordered nunchucks from Amazon,” said one White House staffer who wished to remain anonymous. The tigers are now all over the White House, destroying priceless furniture and art. Even the Secret Service is too intimidated to confront them. Trump, though, seems...

    It was a bear-y baffling discovery in front of a North Carolina home. Cornelius Williams returned home from the grocery store Tuesday night and heard a squeaky noise coming from a cardboard box left in his walkway, WTKR-TV reported. It was dark outside, so Williams called authorities for help. A deputy approached the box, peered inside and to his surprise — he found two newborn bear cubs. Bears are no stranger to Camden County, Sheriff Kevin Jones said. But, he said finding cubs in a box was “a little strange.” Williams wasn’t sure why he was left to bear with...

    Walmart has shared that managers misused $20,000 of a Christmas donation from a foundation associated with Chicago Bears linebacker Khalil Mack. Mack's foundation made the $80,000 donation last month to a location in Fort Pierce, Florida, where the star athlete was born and raised. The donation went towards 350 layaway accounts that totaled $60,000. The remaining funds reportedly went to employees in a decision made by the store's management.
  • Learning from the bears

    Grizzly bears spend many months in hibernation, but their muscles do not suffer from the lack of movement. The bear's metabolism and heart rate drop rapidly. It excretes neither urine nor feces. The amount of nitrogen in the blood increases drastically and the bear becomes resistant to the hormone insulin. A person could hardly survive this four-month phase in a healthy state. Afterwards, he or she would most likely have to cope with thromboses or psychological changes. Above all, the muscles would suffer from this prolonged period of disuse. The scientists from Berlin, Greifswald and the United States were particularly...

    A Russian village is under siege from at least 56 ravenous polar bears that have gathered on the outskirts of the remote outpost. Remarkable images and footage show how Ryrkaypiy is now in virtual lockdown over the worrying predator invasion. All public events have been cancelled and children were given extra protection as they travel to and from kindergarten and school. Special bear patrols are trying to stop the 'hungry' bears entering residential areas. So far the invasion is on the outskirts of the village - which has a population of 766 - in Russia's easternmost Chuktoka region, where the...

    Colorado has a bear problem. Pure and simple, we have too many bears.. When I was a kid growing up .. my brother and I spent a lot of time in the woods. We were hiking, backpacking, exploring, hunting and climbing around all the time in the high country. Never once did we see a bear. I clearly recall the first time I ever saw a bear in the woods, and I was 31 years old, in 1993. Not too long after that, I took over the outfitting permits in Marble, Colorado, and I remember one day when I saw...

    IQALUIT, Nunavut (CP) - A mysterious skull discovered on the edge of the Arctic Circle has sparked interest in what creatures roamed Baffin Island in the distant past, and what life a warming climate may support in the future. Andrew Dialla, a resident of Pangnirtung, Nunavut, says he found the skull protruding from the frozen tundra during a walk near the shore with his daughter about a month ago. The horned skull is about the size of a man's fist. It resembles a baby caribou skull, except at that age, a caribou wouldn't have antlers, researchers and elders have pointed...

    Humans are taking on grizzly bears in a new Discovery Channel show. The network has greenlit Man vs. Bear, a new competition series in which "humans will be entering the bear's territory and take them on in a competition like never attempted." Each week three grizzlies — Bart, Honey Bump and Tank — will take on three new human competitors (male and female) at their Utah sanctuary to test the limits of strength, speed and stamina. All of the challenges — from a game of "tug of war" to using brute force to roll giant logs — will be based...

The attacks occurred within 11 hours and one mile from each other.  Because of the proximity, it is suspected the same bear was involved in both attacks.The attacks are remarkably similar with an interesting difference. In one, the hunters used bear spray. In the other, they used 9 mm handguns.  From The first attack happened about 7:30 a.m. when two archery hunters from New Mexico were following elk tracks south of Cottonwood Creek, west of Black Butte....
