In one of the most adorable animal videos of the year, a mama bear teaches her cubs how to use a playground.
Around 3:30 p.m. Sept. 21, Nancy Culpepper, fourth-grade teacher at Isaac Dickson Elementary School on Hill Street, was talking with some coworkers when she looked out her classroom window and saw two bears rolling around in the playground’s wood chips.
“We started watching, and some other teachers came in to join us,” Culpepper said. “We watched them play for about 30 minutes.”
“The older one would get on top of the stairs, and then the cub would be under, and the cub would paw out at her from under the stairs,” Culpepper said. “It was really neat.”
