Young bear clearly doesn’t want the music to paws as he’s pictured dancing from side-to-side against a tree

THIS young bear clearly doesn’t want the music to paws as he dances from side-to-side against a tree.

The 6ft beast put its arms in the air and jiggled, but photographer Russell Millner said: “His moves were much better than dad-dancing.”

He said the brown bear, around 6ft-tall, was rubbing itself against the tree as a way of marking its territory but ‘was clearly enjoying the sensation’.

Mr Millner, from Bowness-on-Windermere in Cumbria, travelled for three days to capture close-up images of the bears.

“It’s not clear why they do it, but a behavioural ecologist, Dr Owen Nevin, suggested that they use it as a way to communicate with other male bears to reduce conflict with them. It seems to be about scent marking.”

Mr Millner said the young male bear, which weighed around 120kg and was around five metres away, was not bothered by his presence.

Russell, of Bowness-on-Windermere, Cumbria, snapped the bear by the Nakina river in British Columbia, Canada.
