A video of a bear vocalizing in a tree likely could have record producers scrambling to sign it to become the next big thing.
Well, maybe not quite, but it still is pretty fun to hear it vocalizing.
The video posted last week by Yosemite National Park shows an adult male bear vocalizing in a tree, but rangers were uncertain as to the reason why.
“Bears can produce a wide repertoire of sounds, typically when defensive, afraid, distressed or aggressive,” the post said. “We’re not sure what prompted this unscheduled a capella concert…”
According to the North American Bear Center, black bears use sounds, body language, and scent-marking to express their emotions of the moment.
No tourists could be seen trying to bother the bear, so that is likely not the reason the bear was “singing” in the tree last week.
