I hate to break it to you, but the bear D’mitry saw wasn’t actually a bear. It was just a gummy bear. However, I saw a real bear last week, it had claws and everything. It sitting in a tree happily munching apples while I stood and stared at it for a solid fifteen minutes. I also learned something: bears can climb a lot higher than I thought. My flawless escape plan if I ever got chased by a bear of climbing a tree faster than the bear now seems somewhat less flawless. Nothing crushes your sense of self-preservation like watching a bear five metres up a tree and realising just how wrong you were. And the whole time he just chomped away at apples like nothing was up.
Also bears are fat and waddle when they walk. It’s mildly amusing.
