Spring has arrived and that means bear sightings will be increasing. We are no strangers to bears here in Montana. Every spring we can almost guarantee a bear sighting within city limits. Whether it be a report of a bear rummaging through trash, or emptying every last speck of seed from a bird feeder, black bears are hungry and looking for any kind of food. Even stealing from pigs.

Did you know bears and pigs are similar?

It has always been said that bears are just hairy pigs. That is false. Even though they share some similarities to pigs, bears are not closely related.

Several videos took place of the bear being curious and even having a little trouble climbing into pen before discovering video of a bear getting into the pen that started the action of the pigs handing him a new ass and letting him know, no bacon for him!
