Got an itch that you just can’t scratch?

A video captured a black bear in Okanogan County who found a solution: If a back scratcher isn’t available, use a tree. The Washington Department of Fish and & Wildlife posted the video from Sept. 21 to its Facebook page. “Lessons from an Okanogan County black bear: How to scratch an itch…” the caption said.

The black bear population in Washington likely ranges between 25,000 and 30,000, according to the fish and wildlife department. Black bears den during the winter, usually from mid-October through April, when the weather is harsh and food is scarce.
