Bearface cheek! Hilarious moment brown bear puts on pole dancing while trying to scratch his back on the signpost
- Erin Atkinson and her family saw the bear in Bear Country, South Dakota
- The bear rubbed his back up and down the pole in what looked like dancing
- It even threw its arms in the air after scratching its sweet spot on the pole
A South Dakota bear put what looked like a pole dance show on its hind legs and scratched its back against a signpost.
In the hilarious images, the big bear stands on its hind legs with its back against the pole, away from the camera.
Then it rubs itself on the pole, slides up and down until it finds its right place and throws its arm in the air.
The bear is looking away from the camera in Bear Country in Rapid City, South Dakota, standing up against a signpost
The bear then starts the slide up and down the pole and scratches his back in what looks like a dance routine
The video was shot by Erin Atkinson and her husband on May 25, who drove their bear country through the bear country in Rapid City, South Dakota.
The dancing of the bear drew fans on YouTube with one person saying, “Me when it’s Friday.”
Another said, “Wow great.”
Bear Country in Rapid City has more than 100 black bears, making it the largest private collection in the world.
At the end of the video, the bear throws its arm in the air while it finds its place during scratching and the ‘dancing’ ends
It is believed that 600,000 black bears live in the US.
The name ‘black bear’ is deceptive in that it does not refer to the color of the coat and is instead a generic name.
Black bears’ fur can range in color from black to cinnamon to blonde.
This isn’t the only time a bear gets caught in a boogie.
In September, a brown bear was also spotted walking on a bench in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
He nonchalantly rocks his legs and swings back and forth in a display of carefree energy.
He puts his front legs on a wooden picnic table to stabilize himself while the dance continues.
