Bears have been in zoos for over a century. After a time, it makes sense they would catch on to the idea that human’s give them food if they move their paws like people wave. So guess, what? That’s what 21st Century bears do!
The trouble is, bears do this, and in some cases the humans just think it’s cute and don’t give any food at all. Not good.
People, remember that a bear is a dangerous animal. Step into a bear’s lair, and even a waving bear will tear your ass apart.
