Bear climbs on roof of house in Romania

Bears have been shown to be very cuddly creatures, as seen in a number of kids shows and cartoons. In reality of course, bears are massive creatures, very powerful and the same person who laughs at the antics of a bear in a cartoon would strive to run away if seeing a bear in the wild. So what happens when a bear suddenly appears in a city ? People would get panicked and try to escape immediately:

BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) -- A mother bear and her young cub stopped traffic and caused panic Thursday in central Romania after they roamed through gardens in search of food and finally climbed the stairs of a 4-story building and broke onto the roof. A rescue team tranquilized the mother after failing to steer her toward a nearby forest, officials said.
"The bear cub was very small and could not keep up with its mum, and she did not want to go back to the forest without it," said Flavius Barbulescu, head of the animal protection service. The animals finally took refuge in a building, climbing the stairs to the attic, breaking a window and then clambering onto the roof. "That was when we decided to tranquilize the mother," Barbulescu said.

And of course, a mother bear is even more dangerous where a kid is concerned. Her maternal instincts can make the bear very aggressive, especially if there is any perceived danger to the kid bear.
