Watch the Moment a Bear Finds a Camera at His Wildlife Sanctuary

Watch the Moment a Bear Finds a Camera at His Wildlife Sanctuary

Curiosity seems to be born into all of us. Albert Einstein even admitted that he had no special talents, he was only 'passionately curious.'

In the video we have for you here, you can see that it isn't only humans that have an inborn curiosity; even bears have that curiosity as well.

The footage we have for you was shared from the Orphaned Wildlife Center. That organization is not open to the public, but they do have cameras and sometimes share videos so you can see what is going on with the animals behind the scenes.

Helping Animals Get Back To The Wild

The goal of the Orphaned Wildlife Center is to rehabilitate animals that are injured or orphaned and release them into the wild if at all possible. In order to do this, they limit contact with humans so the fear of humans can be maintained.

They work with bears, such as the brown bear you see. As of this time, they have 11 different bears living at the sanctuary.

The Orphaned Wildlife Center also works with other animals, although their primary focus is on the bears and their rehabilitation.

The founders, Jim Kowalczik, Susan Kowalczik, and Kerry Clair, have worked closely with the animals since 2015, when the center opened.

A Bear Gets Curious

In the footage shared on YouTube, the curious Brown bear located one of the recording devices they have at the center in Otisville, New York. The bear, named Jenny, got up close to the camera, and you can even hear her breathing into the microphone.

Fortunately, the recording device survived the up-close-and-personal encounter. It's a beautiful perspective of a brown bear that you don't often see.

I love to write and it keeps me busy. I've been working online, full time since 1999. When you can't find me at the keyboard, you'll find me getting as much as I can out of life. I enjoy living simply, playing games, visiting the beach, and spending time with my family.
