Smart bear rubs itchy back against tree branch


A smart black bear was spotted rubbing his itchy back against a tree branch in Malaysia.

The imposing mammal was satisfyingly scratching his fur in Terengganu on February 27 when resident Puyell noticed him while walking through the woods near his house.

Puyell said the animal even seemed to choose the best tree for reaching the difficult position in its back.

He said: ‘I saw him roaming around as if choosing the best tree to scratch his back with. I was amazed when he began scratching himself.’
