It is early morning in the temperate forest. The sun is rising over the temperate forest glistening over the lake. Fish are jumping in the river and mice are scurrying for berries in the forest. The berry bushes start to rumble. An animal is running from side to side behind the bush trying to hide. Poking claws begin to move through the bush. Black ears move in and the animals run to hide from this big creature.
Through the bushes jumps the huge black bear. It jumps into the river and splashes like a walrus. The bear puts his teeth into the river and snatches up two fish. Successful the bear comes out of the water standing confident as ever.
