Confused bears delighted with runaway pink balloon

A tourist caught a rare glimpse of three sloth bears honing their killer instincts on their natural prey… a pink balloon.

The usual slow and clumsy bears, who mostly feed on insects on fruit in their native India, were mesmerized by the floating intruder.

Refusing to give up the chase, one of the bears even gets up on two legs and runs after it in an attempt to catch it.

Swatting the balloon about to one another, the bears are seemingly delighted with their price.

Unfortunately sharp claws and pink balloons do not mix and the fun is soon enough ended with a bang.

The amazing footage was taken by Xaviera Simons during a visit to the Safaripark Beekse Bergen in the Netherlands.

"Beren maken kennis met een ballon!" Wilde deze video graag delen omdat je de beren maar weinig op deze manier ziet (we hebben in de gaten gehouden dat de beren en apen de ballon niet op aten). Groeten Xaviera Simons
