Bear Waves Bye-Bye
This week's odd animal viral video features a brown bear who waves to visitors at Olympic Game Farm in Sequim, Washington. When I first saw this short clip, I thought for sure that it was faked because the waving motion of the the bear is so quick and almost human-like.
But a quick search on YouTube showed several other videos of this bear waving, shot by various other tourists, and so it seems to be legit. The park is also run by folks that train animals for television and movies (including many of Disney's early nature films) so the behavior isn't random but something this particular bear has been taught to do.
Check it out and let me know what you think.
