A witness at the cabin told Viral Hog, “It was 5 a.m. and Kevin heard a thumping sound from outside our Airbnb cabin in Sevierville.
“He jumped up and looked out to see something near our garbage, just outside his window.
“He pulled out his camera to capture it for the family, in case we didn’t wake up in time to see the bear for himself.
“He walked out slowly and stood face to face with the bear. He greeted him excitedly with ‘Hey Mr. Bear’ and the bear attacked and he ran inside as fast as he could.’
The resident added: ‘The bear eventually left our trash alone and sat down on the hill just over our driveway. We noticed that Mr. Bear is actually a mama bear and she has three little cubs with her!
The lone bear slowly walks away from the property and heads towards the forest area. It later turned out that ‘Mr Bear’ was in fact a female with three cubs
“We had a deck up so we gathered high to watch an amazing moment between a mama bear and her cubs!”
Black bears are solitary creatures that typically live in forests, but they can also be found in mountains and swamps in North America, Canada, and Mexico.
They have small round ears, a coat that can range from blue-gray, blue-black, brown, cinnamon, or even in rare cases white, and short non-retractable claws that help them climb trees.
The creatures spend the winter months sleeping in their burrows, feeding on the body fat they have built up over the summer and fall months.
