Wouldn't surprise me if Momma Bear helped out Jr.
Bears make great mothers, sometimes better than some people do. I wouldn't be shocked if a bear with a high maternal instinct helped him.

Oh please. On the off-chance that a bear was even awake, real life doesn't work like a Disney movie.

Most likely it was a hallucination.

Saw that on the news last night. One of the cops said, "We've heard about things like this happening before." (Not a verbatim quote.) about the bear thing. I'd be more likely to believe it was a large stray dog or a dream. So glad they found the boy though!

Bigfoot is as baseless as the conjurings of a traumatized toddler's imagination.

I think it could be true. Have you ever noticed how animals just seem to instinctively protect babies? It is something about their features (just like we are attracted to baby cats / dogs / rabbits) that makes them more disposed to protect them.

LOL. Only on City Data.

Any self-respecting bear is going to be cozy in its den this time of year instead of auditioning for a Disney movie.

I've lived around bears all my life and this just isn't what happens.

Maybe the kid found a bear den and crawled in? The bear would probably be too sleepy to care, and the protection from the weather afforded by the den would help keep the kid from freezing to death.
