According to most experts, the best thing to do if you find yourself in close proximity to a bear is to stay calm, avoid eye contact, slowly back away, and if worse comes to worse, take out a can of pepper spray and aim for its eyes. But if this new video is any indication, maybe the best way to ward off a bear attack is to take a length of rope, attach it to a tree, get out your video camera, and watch as the adorable bear plays with the rope. Bears, it seems, really, really love playing with rope. Especially cute little bear cubs. Whenever a bear or bear cub is within the presence of a rope swing, it is immediately rendered harmless, and you can safely film it without taking any precautions whatsoever.
