    Let's not rush to judgment, maybe he’s not that stupid, perhaps he first approached and scared the cubs and then acted like a predator while jumping in front of the mother bear because he wanted to commit suicide, you ever think of that?! :D

    I grew up with black bears. And then I bought a house in the Poconos, where there are more black bears than people.

    Black bears are pretty docile. They're generally not interested in people at all. Unprovoked, they're about as aggressive as your average Golden Retriever.

    But any animal will defend their young. That was just stupid.

    A greenhorn went with a guide into the Maine woods. At dawn the guide sends the tenderfoot out to the pond with a bucket for water. The bucket goes clanging on the ground and the guy runs back into the cabin. Where's the water?asks the Down east guide.
    There's a bear standing in the pond was the reply.
    Oh, go on back out there and get some water. That bear is just as afraid of you as you are of it.
    In that case, that water ain't fit for drinking.

    Yeah, rule of thumb, stay away from baby anythings unless it's clearly abandoned, ie. you wait a good hour and mama hasn't shown up. Because even if you don't see the mother, it might be close by and one cry from the baby might mean trouble. Especially predatory animals. Even a household kitty cat will growl at you for getting too close to her babies.

    At least it wasn't a grizzly. Then he'd be dead.

    Though on taking a couple more looks at the video, he may have been trying to keep the cubs from getting run over. You see the oncoming car towards the end? Maybe he was trying to steer the bears away from the road. I can't jump to conclusions, after all he seems pretty elderly and may have been trying to help the bears. Still not a good idea, though. If they're a danger to themselves and the public, animal control is probably your best option.

    You continue to display a profound misunderstanding of Darwin ...and the Darwin awards.
