While the momma bear was relaxing on her own, the youngsters were much more energetic, he shares:

“The cubs played among themselves like little children. They stood in a circle and began to push each other, stamping their feet, it was like dancing in a circle. They stood there for about half a minute, pushing and shoving.”

“Then they started fighting and all were in one pile on the ground.” Thankfully Valtteri was in the right place and the right time to capture all of this with his camera.
