Quote of the Day: Take That, Ninja Cat

“He is the master of stickfighting — using a small tree as a quarterstaff. Claude is a 6-year-old orphan Asiatic black bear, a resident of the Asa Zoo in Hiroshima. His ability to twirl sticks is jaw-dropping — so good that it looks fake, but there are other videos at Japanator (with a baseball bat) and here. The bear was not trained in this performance. It could be dysfunctional behavior of a zoo animal, or simple playfulness.”
