Let’s take a walk on the wild side with these 50 bear puns. Bears naturally are wild animals but are now perceived by many as cuddly, comforting creatures. The main reason for this was the invention of the teddy bear in 1902, which was inspired by the political drawing of President Theodore (Teddy) Roosevelt. 

In Native American traditions, the bear represents authority, courage, and strength. The bear is said to be a healer and protector. 

Bears are shown to be warm, fuzzy, somewhat slow creatures within great kids’ stories such as Winnie the Pooh, The Jungle Book, and Paddington. We love their funny antics and mothering energy. 

So cuddle up to these hilariously funny puns and bear with me because things are getting silly.
