A Bear Cub’s Adventure


Bears have excellent sense of smell and very keen hearing. However, they are short sighted.

Mishook, the cub Bear, smelt something sweet. What could it be? The cub did not know but his mother and the elder ones recognized the aroma of honey. With hurried steps, the whole Bear family set off in search of the honey.

 They trotted for about a kilometre before they reached the old decayed tree trunk where the bees had dwelt. The poor bees saw the plunderers and shook in alarm. They, then defended their store of honey by fiercely stinging the Bears.


The mother Bear and the cubs calmly continued their feast of honey, their thick fur protecting them against the attacks of the bees. They looked nowhere. One angry bee, however, plunged its sting into Mishook’s nose. He growled furiously, shook his head, jumped, snorted, turned around like a spinning top and with great difficulty, he managed to beat off the
troublesome bee with his paws. But this happening did not shake him and he had his taste of honey which he became very fond of.
