Disneynature’s BEARS in Theatres April 18th & CONTEST!

Disneynature BEARS Comes to Theatres April 18th!
Disneynature’s new True Life Adventure BEARS chronicles one year in the life of two mother bears, set in the Alaskan wilderness.  As they teach their young cubs life lessons, the world is an exciting, but dangerous, playground.  The bears face threats like avalanches, wolf packs, and predators.  The brown bears must forge together to find food—and a feast of salmon is their reward.  BEARS captures the essence of one of the planet’s last great wildernesses, where mothers know best and their cubs’ survival depends upon family unity.

Directors: Alastair Fothergill (“Earth,” “African Cats” and “Chimpanzee”) and Keith Scholey (“African Cats”).  BEARS debuts in theatres on April 18, 2014, in celebration of Earth Day!

  7. I actually ran into a bear while hiking with my wife several years ago in Kootenay National Park (South of Banff). We were about 10 kms in when we came upon a large Grizzle Bear about 100 feet away. Luckily it turned and ran instead of charging and once we stopped shaking we realized what an awesome experience it was. Can't wait to see this movie (with our kids) as we have now become to love everything Bear!

  12. Yes, we came face to face with a mama bear and her cubs at Whistler - it was quite scary, as she was in full protective mode of her babies!!

  13. I saw a polar bear in the Toronto Zoo and a black bear in the Philippines but not the brown or panda bear. I read about the brown and polar bears online and learned that the polar bears are having a hard time surviving as a result of people's activities that affect them. I also watched an American who befriended brown and black bears near Alaska though not everyone appreciated the bears coming in their community.

  14. I saw a polar bear in the Toronto Zoo and a black bear in the Philippines but never a brown bear. I also learned more online from bears.org & Wikipedia so I know that the polar bears are endangered species. They're also descended from the brown bears. An American man befriended brown and black bears in his cottage somewhere near Alaska but his neighbours are not so pleased that bears are in their community. I think he's stopped it as he's already old to deal with the bears as they are stronger than him and he once lost consciousness after a bear swiped him with a paw. I both respect and admire these bears in the wild as they are very intelligent, but also unpredictable at times.

  15. I have seen brown bear momma and cubs in former Yugoslavia ... but from a far ... we stayed away from them they are dangerous even though they are interesting to look at. I do like polar bears a lot.

  16. I was close enough to see a cub in Northern CA; N. America Redwoods (another type of rainforest) while hiking. The cub was unexpected and as it was in front of and on a path almost exactly parralel path to me, seemed it would start to follow me (it was off path) and the Mama was (I could tell somehow; hear, sense) just safely around the bend from sight, I decided to change direction to be safe and allow them to stay calm as well. The cub seemed happy, even playful almost, beckoning me with it's eyes, but I knew if I went, odds were low the Mama would approve without asking HER FIRST ;-) That was, I think, my one and only really close up BEAR encounter. I believe they were CA Brown Bears. (smaller than Grizzly) It took me a minute to realize what I was seeing since you get used to thinking you are alone and knowing there are animals in the woods but believing your paths will not cross. Most times with nature they are hikers too, just pass their way and go about their day :-)
