Two cubs and an itchy mama bear take on a Sudbury residence

Apparently, bears have an affinity for Greater Sudbury neighbourhoods, with Sudbury.com having received another bear sighting video

It’s not everywhere you will find bears visiting your home, but Northern Ontario appears to be one of those places.

Last month, two cubs and an itchy mama bear were filmed in a Sudbury resident’s backyard, making it the second bear sighting video Sudbury.com has received in recent weeks.

The two cubs appear to have wandered into a backyard, where they claimed their new hangout spot. Soon afterward, an itchy mama bear joined the two cubs in the yard. 

Sudbury resident Samantha Graham submitted the videos of her new friends for Sudbury.com’s “Animal Watch” series. 

“Well, at least they’re not eating my tomatoes,” Graham said in the video. 

While the bears spared Graham’s garden, they most certainly left a memorable impression.
