Big bear tries its best to fit into tiny playground swing

By  | 

Residents of the Russian town of Kolpashevo spotted a large brown bear trying to use a small swing set in the town’s playground.

According to The Siberian Times, the bear is actually part of a circus group that was slated to perform in the area later that day. Although it can’t be seen on the video, its handler was apparently close by.

“You can see a collar on the bear. I had a call from locals who saw the bear trying to get on a swing next to the club. We found later that the bear cub was on a walk with its handler,” Kolpashevo region’s ranger Sergey Yelnikov told the Times.

Just a bear out for a walk. Nothing to see here, folks.
