An interesting video of wild bears playing football has surfaced on social media. First shared by a Twitter user, the snippet shows two bears playing with a football, while the audience in the background cheers them up.
The incident happened in the Nabrangpur district in Odisha. Sharing the video on the microblogging platform, the twitter user explained that the two bears visible in the video are mother and kid.
Reportedly, the incident happened at the Sukhigaon area where some kids were playing with a football at a village playground when suddenly the two bears appeared. Panicked, the boys fled the area leaving their ball and later recording the incident.
However, the Divisional Forest Officer (DFO) of the district says that the bears are actually judging the white object that appeared in their field of vision as a natural animal instinct and thus appears as if they are playing with the ball.
