Maybe they were looking for a place to escape a telling off from mum and dad, but these mischievous young bear cubs haven”t done a very good job of hiding themselves.

At least 11 of the playful youngsters were photographed sitting in the spindly-looking tree in North America clinging to every spare inch of the trunk.
