880-Pound Bear Gives Rescue Center Worker Playful Nibbles During Brush Down

A 24-year-old, 880-pound Syrian brown bear being cared for at a New York wildlife center gave one of his carers several playful nibbles as he got his coat brushed down, footage shared to YouTube shows.

The Orphaned Wildlife Center, located in Otisville, New York, nurtures orphaned animals such as Leo the bear, who gives several playful bites to one of the center’s co-founders, Jim Kowalczik, during this footage.

The center often shares videos and updates about the animals in its care to its YouTube channel and Facebook page. Credit: Kerry Clair via Storyful
