Bears can be scary because of their strength and their size, but actually, they also can be cute. In this video, we see a man who has had his friend black bear come and visit him for years bring her brand new cubs to meet him. It is such an amazing moment.
In this part of America, black bears are known to be very common and really getting along with humans.
In Asheville, North Carolina, the population of bears is increasing, and in turn, they have come to live with the people, it appears. For Patrick Conley, starting in the late summer of 2017, a bear family started visiting him continuously, almost becoming like a family.
In this video, we see the bear Patrick named Simone come out of the woods to greet her friend. This is not strange but what she was bringing with her was a huge surprise. Following behind her was her first litter of cubs!
Patrick couldn’t believe it when he saw the cubs and even wrote in the video’s description that they were the most adorable things ever to walk these woods, but he is biased. Simone has become like a close friend to Patrick, so seeing these cubs is like seeing a new family member.
Simone is so comfortable she walks right onto the porch with the cubs following right behind.
Making it even more obvious that Simone is extremely relaxed with Patrick and finds this human to be her friend, she walks onto his porch. The cubs are a little warier, considering they’ve never been here before, but they trust their mother.
Eventually, all three bears are on the porch for greeting, and Patrick is just completely surprised. It is amazing to see unusual animals and humans’ friendship. After a while, the three bears leave the porch and walk across the street to climb a tree for a little bit.
The cubs are getting used to the world and are having a happy time exploring.
Both of the cubs run to the nearest tree to climb and play with each other, but the mama bear stays close behind. After a while of roaming, climbing, and playing, Simone tells her fresh cubs it is time to go home. The three head back to the forest to go home.
Patrick noticed that Simone is looking well-fed, and considering how close they all got to him, they will be back soon, which he looks forward to.

Fortunately for us, we can watch Patrick’s journey with the bears from the beginning, and it’s an astonishing journey to watch. The mother, now grandmother, a bear named Maïté, has three bears: her hefty son Maurice, shy Solange, and Simone, who we can see in the video.
Now Patrick has to come up with two more names for the new family members. What a wonderful encounter with nature that got caught on film.
