Bears are commonly known as fierce, dangerous creatures. However, they also have a soft side to them that is perfectly demonstrated below in one man’s wonderful story of how he and his black bear became friends.
Over the years, the mama bear has come to visit Patrick many times and one day she brought her baby bears to meet him.
Black bears are very common in North Carolina where Patrick is from, and they are known to be comfortable with humans.
The bear population in this part of the US is booming, and this is due to the bears adapting to living with humans.
In the video, you can see Simone the bear coming out of the woods to say hello.
This in itself is a regular occurrence for Patrick, nothing out of the ordinary. But with her this time, she brought her first litter of cubs to meet him. He really couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw the adorable family of cubs plodding along behind the momma cub.

He really couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw the adorable family of cubs plodding along behind their momma’s side – they were so cute!
‘The cubs are the cutest things to ever have walked these woods, but then I’m kind of biased,’ The caption for this video indicates he is quite fond of them.
Meeting the cubs was the same as meeting a new family member for Simone because she was already a close friend to Patrick.
And you can see how close and comfortable Simone feels with Patrick, as she walks out on the porch without hesitation. The cubs are clearly not as at ease or confident in their momma’s company as they hesitate a little before jumping up to follow her onto the porch.
A bear, typically known to be formidable and fearsome when encountered in the wild, is so protective of Patrick that she trusts him with her recent newborn cubs. This is a truly amazing feat considering bears are commonly feared by humans!
The two cubs are still getting used to the new world, and they both run towards a tree where they can climb and play at. Simone follows closely behind them too.
After some exploring, climbing and playing around in the forest, Simone signaled its time to go. Patrick mentioned that it looked well-fed and healthy.
