This morning, Sooke resident Ben Kendrick woke up to a curious surprise on his trail camera.

The adorable video of the black bear was taken on Kendrick’s property in Sooke, B.C. – and this wasn’t the only one!

So far, it looks like the poor guy was suffering from a bad itch, while also trying to hide behind (or climb?) the tree.

But it looks like the tree wasn’t too useful after all – sometimes, you just have to do it yourself to get it right!

According to Kendrick, his trail camera has been up for about a week, and this is the first they’ve seen of the Itchy Black Bear.

But Ben reckons they might see more of him in the future, so stay tuned for updates!
