Bears At The Zoo Are Hilariously Baffled By A Bright Pink Balloon

You really never know what to expect when you plan a trip to your local zoo with your family. You might arrive just in time to see some of the adorable animals enjoying a special birthday treat, or maybe stumble upon a moment of extra-sweet interspecies friendship.

One thing is for sure every time you buy a ticket, though: you definitely won’t be bored! The facilities are amazing ways for everyone, young and old, to experience and learn about creatures we would ordinarily steer clear of if we saw them out in the wild.

For instance, seeing a group of big, burly bears is not something anyone should ever walk up to and expect a friendly greeting. But from the safety of the Safaripark Beekse Bergen in the Netherlands, these guests got a glimpse of some hilariously curious critters.

The three cuties are wandering around their enclosure when they come across something that totally baffles their silly brains: a bright pink balloon.

The barely filled orb floats around the grass and at first, only one seems to notice it. Watching as it tiptoes ever so carefully over to the balloon is one of the silliest things I have ever seen! They could easily squish or slash it with their big paws, but they seem to be scared of it. They remind me of my dog, but she’s about an eighth of their size. It almost seems like they’re a group of little kids wearing bear costumes, but this is totally the real deal!

Take a look to see their precious reactions for yourself. And don’t forget to SHARE with your friends!
