This cheeky bear thought he could get away with a quick pole dance while nobody was watching. But fortunately Michael Ethridge, 66 was on hand with his mobile phone to catch the adult grizzly in all its glory. The bear’s rhythmic motion made it look like it would be more comfortable in a strip club – but it may have just been having a good scratch. The footage was caught by Michael, who works as a Director of Operations for Birmingham Baptist Association in Alabama, in Rapid County, South Dakota in the Summer of 2014.

Videographer / Director: Michael Ethridge
