Grizz Lee Bear Attack

Hello, faithful readers.

I know that we all, at some point in our lives, have asked ourselves the question "Could I beat up a bear?"

This video may change your answer to that question:

This clip was sent to me by, alert reader, Dustin. As far as he and I can tell, this video is completely legit. Claude (that's his name) is a black bear that lives in the Asa Zoo in Hiroshima, Japan. He's been there since 2002 and his interests include eating, swimming and twirling around sticks. You can see more of his stick hijinks by clicking here.

Now, if you think that first video was cool, watch it again with this song playing in the background
Or, if 70s disco music isn't your thing, give this one a shot
Or if you're one of those people who don't believe the bear is doing actual Kung Fu. . .
And if none of those songs strikes your fancy, you can always click here for a song that is perfect for any occasion.

In conclusion, Grashopper, always keep in mind this ancient Chinese proverb: If the wind comes from an empty cave, it's not without a reason.

i have to admit, i feel a little duped, because i thought the song links had the music over the video (i didn't realize that i had to do the work myself...)

the funny thing is that he's even more dangerous without the stick. after all, he's a bear....

Wow, if that footage is really genuine that is some skill. I think that's Aikido isn't it (when you use sticks in martials arts?).

Some good soundtracks to go along with it too. Nice post.

I wonder if bears suffer from chronic tinnitus (probably it would if it whacked itself inadvertently with that stick). If they do, then they would also benefit from a natural cure for tinnitus. Check it out at
