Can the teams of the NCAA Final Four compete with the ball handling skills of these bears? Bears are curious animals. They often play with strange or novel objects they find. A bear’s natural curiosity can lead it to associate our property as toys. This can strongly motivate bears to approach people and buildings in the future. Keep bears safe. Store food and equipment properly.
