WARNING: This Video of Two Bear Cubs Wrestling Will Probably Make Your Heart Melt

Forget the Slow Loris holding an umbrella...this is now officially the internets cutest video

Here’s a cute video to end the day — two baby bears wrestling at Yosemite National Park in California. Jeff Molyneaux captured this amazing video just outside the park near Hetch Hetchy as he was driving home from a hiking and camping trip. Don’t worry, the mama bear is out of the shot, just off the road and after the wrestling match, the bear cubs made it safely to her. “It is still one of the best experiences I have had on a camping trip,” Jeff says.

When American human Jef Molyneaux went camping in Yosemite, he probably expected to bump into a few regulation animals like rabbits and squirrels and marmots. He probably even hoped he’d spot the occasional Red-Tail Hawk or Bobcat.

What he wont have expected to have ran into, however, is probably the most adorable thing on the planet: two baby bear cubs having a wrestle in the middle of the road. This seems the obvious point to make a whole bunch of WWE references but, well, humans in tights wrestling’s a bit shit, isn’t it.

And for those of you worry about the cubs safety, Jeff assures us that the scrapping couple soon made their way back to the tree line where the mother bear, who was presumably slightly pissed off with her offspring’s shenanigans, was waiting for them.

“It’s one of the best experiences I have had on a camping trip,” said Molyneaux of his painfully cute sighting. And as camping experiences go, it’s certainly one up from our childhood ones, from which our overriding memory is hearing our nana having a piss in the ’emergency bucket’ in the middle of the night.
