The Hermantown Police Department caught a fun moment with some bears and cubs on a trampoline in town.

Momma bear was on the Trampoline watching while the cubs were jumping and rolling around. Just a day out to the park for them. I would have liked to have seen how the bears were able to get up on the trampoline and play in the first place. I'm surprised they didn't tear the safety net.

They also used the post to remind people, these bears may be cute, but they are also dangerous. More and more bears, deer, and other animals are coming out of the woods to look for food and play a little. COVID made them come out more because there weren't any people around.

The bears and other animals were used to being able to knock over a garbage can or two and have a people food buffet whenever they wanted. I have notice a lot of deer in the morning on my way to work. It's families coming out, not just one animal. Again, the Hermantown Police department is warning people that it's not safe to walk up to them.

If you do decide to feed any animals, put the food on the ground in the woods, away from your home or family area or backyard sitting area. Don't entice them to come close to you, they may look fun but they are wild animals and should be treated as such.

Here's how to handle a bear if you do encounter one.
