(WXIA) -- A bear at a wildlife sanctuary sits behind its fence as car after car goes by. When one car stopped to wave at the bear and say hi, what did the bear do? Wave back!
The YouTube video of the bear has been online since June 2010, but it has now gone viral, racking up thousands of views over the past few days.
According to a report from the Huffington Post, the bear lives at the Olympic Game Farm in Sequim, Washington -- the home of animals that starred in Disney's nature films in the 1960s.
The article says the bear has been waving at parkgoers for many years, hamming it up for cameras.
