Two black bears were caught by a trail camera as they wrestled playfully with each other in South Lake Tahoe, California, on Friday, July 8.

The footage was captured by nature enthusiast and South Lake Tahoe local Toogee Sielsch, who documents wildlife in the area on cameras positioned along various trails.

Sielsch said the bears were yearling siblings and that the scuffle went on for over 10 minutes.

“Looks like they are enjoying life without mom,” Sielsch wrote on Instagram. Credit: Toogee Sielsch via Storyful
