"Tough Love"
Brown bear's parenting method snapped in Ukraine 's Simferopol Zoo.......What the little chap had done to
incur his mother's wrath remains a mystery, but the chances are that he won't do it again!

A baby bear made his mother angry. She tried to explain something to him in the corner, and then shook him by the neck.

How many times have I told you not to do that? She pins him in the corner for a dressing down.
First, the mother glares angrily at her son as he stands a few feet away looking guilty and sheepish.
Within seconds he is backed into a corner with a terrified expression as she roars her disapproval.
Shortly afterwards he finds himself airborne after she seizes him by the scruff of the neck and propels him from side to side.

Perhaps THIS will teach you a lesson. She picks him up by the scruff of the neck and swings him around.

The crestfallen cub approaches his mother.  Sorry, Mom!!

Never mind. Mommy loves you! 
He gets a bear-hug to show the row is over. She gently hugs him to her chest to reassure him that all is forgiven.

If the so-called Mayan prediction is true, you won't be able to see this:
