Kung Fu bear

Footage has emerged of an Asian black bear allegedly doing ‘Kung Fu’ style moves with a stick.

The footage, which was uploaded to YouTube a few days ago, shows the bear first playing with the 5ft stick with a paw.
The bear then appears to start twirling the stick rapidly around its head using ‘Kung Fu’ style moves.
Animal behaviour expert Professor Marc Bekoff from the University of Colorado said the footage appears genuine.
He said: “This is an amazing example of animal object control. This goes beyond normal animal usage of complex tools but then again you can train seals to balance balls on their noses and train elephants to paint with their trunks, so why not this.
“I would guess this is the result of extreme training and would find it hard to believe the animal taught itself this spontaneously.”
Professor Bekoff added that the bear’s ‘Kung Fu’ moves were not natural and the bear must have been in a situation of extreme boredom.

Now all they needa do is teach it to a panda… xP
