Bear Cub Adjusts Trail Camera With Amazing Results

A bear cub adjusted a trail camera with surprisingly good results in Northern Minnesota.

The video was captured on a Voyageurs Wolf Project trail camera in the Gopher State this year.

In the first part of the clip, which was filmed back in September, the black bear cub approaches the camera and starts moving the recording device around.

In the process, the bear manages to entirely re-adjust the camera so that it takes unexpectedly good, close-up videos of the wildlife in Minnesota.

The camera captured various wildlife that calls the Voyageurs’ ecosystem home, including the Windsong Pack of wolves and several videos of the pack’s pups.

During the video, which was filmed over the course of a month, the camera also captures close-up shots of a bobcat, a fisher, and even more bears.

There is even a sighting of a ruffled goose towards the end of the clip.

The researchers behind the Voyageurs Wolf Project write: “While this cub has much to learn about setting cameras, it did a much better job than most of its comrades, the camera captured some very nice, close-up videos of wildlife!”

The Voyageurs Wolf Project studies wolves and their prey (which include moose, deer, and beavers) during the summer in the Greater Voyageurs Ecosystem, which consists of the area in and around Voyageurs National Park, in northern Minnesota.

A research project through the University of Minnesota, the Voyageurs Wolf Project is aimed at furthering an understanding of wolf behavior, specifically how wolves spend their summer.

The organization shares its discoveries on social media and near-daily videos and photos from its trail cameras of wolves and other animals that call Minnesota home, amassing a large group of online followers.

Bears on Camera

Last week, PetaPixel reported on the moment a videographer filmed the extraordinary moment a grizzly bear kills a moose during a wedding

Event videographer Stanton Giles was filming a couple’s wedding ceremony on the shore of Two Medicine Lake in Glacier National Park in Montana, U.S. on August 18.

The groom had nearly finished reading his vows when a grizzly bear charged out of the brush onto the north shore and attacked a moose calf as its mother looked on.
