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!

We know this city. You should too. 👊
