Polar Bears Play in Dump Truck

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Russia resident captured footage of a polar bear and her cubs using a dump truck as their own personal playground.

The video, filmed by a resident in Chukotka Autonomous Okrug, near Egvekinot, shows the mother and two cubs climb into the back of the dump truck and poke through its contents."


A dumpster diver brings to mind a a homeless person with feces-encrusted pants and a dirty T-shirt foraging for cigarette butts and bottles of beer with more backwash than beer.

A city where dumpster divers are tolerated is a city on the verge of anarchy. When I see a dumpster diver I feel conflicted, I don`t know whether to buy him lunch, or padlock him in the dumpster.

But these polar bear in Russia are the most adorable dumpster divers on the face of the Earth, watch as Mama Bear and her cubs forage for food in a dump truck.

If only the homeless were at cut as polar bears, we might have more empathy for them.
