THE FRONT PORCH — A while ago we featured an adorable video of bobcat cubs roughhousing in someone's backyard. One of the unintended consequences of that article — and I take full responsibility for this — is that other animals would watch the video and try to imitate it.

Which brings us to this video:

As you can clearly see, these two bears caught wind of the earlier video and decided to outdo the bobcats by holding a legitimate wrestling match on someone's front porch. The cubs unleash some killer moves on each other, such as the "Swat-n-Chomp" and the "Ear-grinder."

According to the Ring doorbell video's description, these cubs are among seven bears that frequent the area. Apparently, they sometimes even enter vehicles that are parked in the driveway (no doubt trying to hotwire the cars, so they can go on a joyride).

When it comes to their wrestling match, however, it seems that all good things must come to an end. The mama bear ultimately decided that the cubs had had enough wrestling and it was time to go get dinner.
