Pepe the Bear eats apples from a tree

It is the season of apples. Near a favorite bear area, there's an apple tree that very rarely has fruit. Two years ago, it had just a few apples that made a young bear named "Pepe" go wild. He was small so he could easily climb into the tree to pick apples.

Last year, it had no apples. Pepe was around but the lack of apples must have made him sad.

This year, the year of the drought, the tree has more apples than I've ever seen before! Pepe arrived right on schedule. First, he ate the apples off the ground. On his next visit, he started climbing to get them. Climbing is more of a challenge now than 2 years ago because he's grown a lot!

I put together the footage of him at the apple tree. Enjoy!

  3. That was fun watching Pepe pick apples. We're surprised the tree didn't break from his weight when he went so high in it.

  5. Pepe is one smart bear! And I too am surprised he did not break off the limbs. He would absolutely love to climb in our job Norma tree full of avocados and I bet he would love the avocados even better than the apples. I wonder if there's get stomach aches from eating too many apples like people do! He gave me quite a few laugh-out-loud moments

  11. That would have to be the funniest video of a bear ever, so glad the branches held his weight.

  16. Wow, he went up pretty high in that tree - he must really enjoy apples. Pepe needs to learn to shake the tree limbs and knock the apples to the ground. We just LOVE the bear videos.

  17. Determined fellow! I'm sure those apples are a real treat for him. I wonder what mother nature has in store for us this winter with the increased produce.

    Take care and stay well!

  19. He sure does like his apples. He could come to our house as the neighbors have an apple tree that drops apples in out yard. Mom is always tossing them back over the fence. We didn't even know bears like to eat apples.
