Bear Hilariously Looks Like It’s Dancing Up & Down A Stripper Pole While Leaving Scent On Tree

When it comes to bears, we typically think of massive creatures that have the ability to do some serious damage to you.

Don’t get me wrong, I would never advise anyone in a million years to approach one while out in its natural habitat, because there’s a good chance it won’t end well (especially if it’s a mama bear with her cubs).

However, there are a good many examples of how bears just like to play and chill, and at times are just “guys being dudes.”

We’ve seen a number of examples, such as the bear that leaped from someone’s back deck and slid down the bird feeder like it was a fire pole, and another that raided a cookout just because it wanted to scarf down a few burgers and wash it down with some Diet Coke.

And here we are yet again.

In this hilarious video taken by Tom McClelland, a Northern Ontario resident who is known for posting wild trail cam videos, you can see a bear sliding its back up and down a tree, almost looking like it’s dancing up and down a stripper pole.

Not to mention, the background music makes this video absolutely golden.

Of course, bears do this as a way to leave their scent and communicate with other bears, but it’s a hilarious thought to think that this one could be dancing.
