A brown bear of over 300-pound proved surprised people with its delightfully friendly attitude and familiarity with the human ways.


A video uploaded to YouTube by the user, ‘homefry815,’ revealed a brown bear at Olympic Game Farm in Washington waiving at a visitor of the farm.

The video begins with a woman looking outside her vehicle at the farm, while she is being recorded by a male companion, who is driving the vehicle.

Outside the window, one can see the beautiful and green stretch of the Olympic Game Farm. But the thing that immediately stands out in the video is a brown bear, probably more than 300 pounds, sitting on the ground with its forelimbs pressed against the ground.

The beer shows surprising calmness in its sitting stance. It keeps on watching at the woman in the vehicle without making a single movement. Its demeanor gives a hint of the animal’s familiarity with human beings.

Then the woman does something that most visitors would normally do upon seeing some cute or alluring animals of the farm. She raised a hand and waved at it.

Surprisingly, this time, the animal does something that amazed the pair inside the vehicle. The bear raised its one huge paw and waved back at the woman, mimicking her exact same movements.

What’s even more shocking is the fact that it’s not just a lazy lift of its paw, but rather a cordial and energetic wave, similar to what one might give to a close friend.
