The park tweeted video of an adult male black bear vocalizing on top of a tree Thursday.
Sound on! 🔊— Yosemite National Park (@YosemiteNPS) October 16, 2020
Check out this video of an adult male black bear vocalizing in a tree! Bears can produce a wide repertoire of sounds, typically when defensive, afraid, distressed, or aggressive. We're not sure what prompted this unscheduled a capella concert...#KeepBearsWild pic.twitter.com/2PZZtUHJHs
In the video, you can hear the bear belting out his voice for nearly a minute.
Bears can make all kinds of noises, typically when they are afraid, distressed, or aggressive. But the park says it doesn't appear there was anything wrong here.
Rangers say they see this bear all the time and he seems to be healthy.
Yosemite National Park recently announced that it is ending the day-use reservation system that was in effect throughout this summer due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
