Bears, unfortunately suffer a lot at the hands of humans like the ones who are captured and forced to dance and bears who are kept in small cages and tortured in bile farms. They are also often feared and given a bad reputation. Bears who rummage through people’s yards looking for food are often called ‘intrusive’ and are legally killed for doing so.

However, in this hilarious video, a gentleman takes a sweet approach to his encounter with bears. He simply asks them politely to leave his yard because he has to go to work. Funny enough, that’s all it takes! The mama bear and her cubs begin to walk away and he tells them to have a nice day and “I hope you enjoyed my yard!” Although encounters with bears can indeed be dangerous, this video proves that we can coexist with bears without resorting to violence.
