Fright Bears in playground

Some folks who live on the Hillside area of Anchorage, Alaska, built this playground in their yard last weekend for their 3 and 4 year-old boys.

The next morning, the mom woke up to this scene.

The Alaskan Chapter of the American Public Works Association lists the four pictures, plus four more, on its site and claims it happened at the Anchorage Park (bottom of page)

Its cute, but can you imagine ever again letting your children play out there on that again?

It's quite suprising where baby animals are willing to play. They just don't have the fear of humans that the adults do. And black bears are the cutest, since they are also good climbers.
