Sifting though wildlife footage might be fun for some, but for rangers like Alberta’s Glenn Naylor, who sets up cameras throughout the province’s parks, endless hours of wind-rustled leaves can probably get a bit tedious.
So imagine Naylor’s delight at seeing footage that could best be described as a bear hoedown.
The video shows bears and other species communicating with each other through a “rub” tree in one of the Kananaskis Country parks. Though the bears’ intention is to leave behind their scent, the stop-motion photographs bear a hilarious resemblance to a deep-woods shindig.
Naylor added a country tune courtesy of Ewan Dobson and uploaded the footage to YouTube, and the resulting video quickly went viral.
