Splash down! Adorable bear cub loves playing buckaroo with its mother in river
An adorable bear cub can’t get enough of playing BUCKAROO – as it hangs onto its mum splashing about in a river.
His mum was attempting to catch a fish supper for the pair as the plucky cub continued to jump on her back.
And as she was concentrating on her meal the young bear became a distraction.
So she sprung into life with him on her back before he was tossed into the water much to his delight.
Keen photographer Lisa Sidorsky, 49, captured the playful scenes while visit the Katmai National Park in Alaska, USA.
The snapper, from West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA, said: “The mum just wanted to fish so she removed the cub from her back to try and catch food.
“The young grizzly would keep trying until its mother allowed it to climb on her back – only to be playfully thrown off time after time.
“What fascinates me most about bears is the difference between the reputation they have and their actual behaviour.
“They are strong and powerful, yet very gentle, beautiful and curious creatures.”
