With the spring thaw upon us, bears are awakening from their long slumber, and these ultra-smart animals sure do some silly stuff. We scoured the internet for the most hilarious bear videos we could find.

1. Bear on a rope

In this first clip, Pat Garret of Garret Bros. Outfitting in Alberta, Canada catches a black bear on video trying to get to a beaver tied up in a tree. The bear precariously hangs from the tightrope, using his teeth at times when his grip slips, in order to make his way to the beaver. Watch for yourself to see what happens:

2. Bear up a tree

In this next clip from Bärengraben Park in Bern, Switzerland, a mama grizzly bear tries to retrieve a five-month-old cub from a flimsy tree branch. After trying various methods, the results are hilarious.

A unique choice in audio sampling makes all the difference in this next clip from Parc Omega, Quebec that depicts bears poll dancing. Yep… poll dancing, though G-rated. 

4. Bear in a garage

6. Bear on a hammock

Lastly, here is an adorable bear cub trying to get comfortable in a hammock. We all know that’s not always easy. Let the hilarity ensue…
