FUR-iller: boogying bear practices iconic dance routine
This is the hilarious moment a boogying bear was seen practising it’s best Michael Jackson impression – by performing a fur-iller dance routine.
Pictured pulling the iconic pose, this bear-illiant dancer makes for a striking resemblance to the King of Pop in the legendary music video.
But despite looking as if it was keen to impress the cameras, the grooving grizzly was in fact drying itself off after fishing in a nearby river.
Captured by Russian photographer, Alexey Tishchenko, 44, the bear fanatic couldn’t stop laughing after noticing the amusing sequence of images on the back of his camera.
Alexey said: “I had been watching the bears fish for quite a while before this one decided to stand up and make it’s way across the shoreline.
“I managed to get some shots of it drying itself off but I had no idea how funny they were until I checked my camera.
“I was with my daughter at the time and were both laughing about how it looked like Michael Jackson in the Thriller video.
“We had been photographing the bears for quite a few hours so that they would get comfortable with our presence, our patience really paid off.
“Bears can be very entertaining creatures, just looking at these pictures makes me realise why I enjoy photographing them so much.”
