As any parent would, Luka was determined to keep his kids safe. So he shielded them from the bear. However, it wasn’t long before it hit him that they were perfectly safe where they were. Despite not knowing much about black bears, Luka had heard that they don’t regularly attack humans unless they are “poked.”
He was also told in the past that this bear was one of the most peaceful types around. All the family could do was stare in awe at this beautiful creature. But all Luka could think about was how it was so important to keep an eye out for any threats from the woods whenever he took out the trash.
A State of Panic
Everything was going so well up until now. His wife was happy, and his kids were really getting used to enjoying the wonders of nature, which brought a tear to his eye. That was what he thought until he got woken up one morning by his kids, who were in a complete state of panic.
They told their dad that he urgently needed to get out of bed and come and have a look at what they spotted outside their cabin. Luka was still half asleep, but he managed to drag himself out of bed. Why? Because there was something really important going on outside — at least, according to the kids.
A Big Black Bear
He had no idea what was going on, but he rubbed his eyes to try to wake himself up a bit. He splashed some water on his face as he did every morning and followed his kids to what they urgently needed to show him downstairs. They made their way down the stairs and into the living room with the massive glass door.
It didn't take very long for Luka to make sense of what he was staring at. Right outside his house, on their doorstep, stood a big black bear. After seeing this fierce animal on the other side of his glass door, Luka completely froze.
As Safe as They Could Be
Luka knew that he needed to be extra vigilant with the trash outside. Any strange smells could attract all kinds of predators. A sense of relief washed over the entire family knowing that they were safe as long as they handled their trash responsibly.
There was a good reason why these glass doors were as strong as they were – to prevent people, or animals, from breaking in. Even before seeing the bear, Luka moved his family into this cabin knowing that it was designed to keep the residents safe. Luka took some deep breaths, as he knew he could rest his head a little. In fact, he had put many safety measures in place.
Luka Was Well-Prepared
Everyone told Luka that he was kind of crazy for moving into the woods and taking his family with him. As they knew he was adamant about the move, they gave him all the tips in the world to make his home as safe as possible. For a start, they told him to get the very best security system installed throughout the cabin.
Just on the off chance that someone did break in, it would trigger alarms immediately. But also, he was advised to get the strongest, most secure doors and windows added to the home too. And maybe most importantly, Luka needed a comprehensive insurance policy for the home. In the event of a break-in, all stolen and damaged goods would be covered.
