WATCH: Bear finds creative way to scratch that itch

- A bear in Washington state found a way to ease himself from an itch in one of those hard-to-reach places.

The bear stood up with his back to a tree and that seemed to take care of the problem before he wandered off again into the woods.

The bear seemed to be preparing for its hibernation, biologists say.

Biologists who monitor the trail cameras also caught the bear on video taking part in another back-scratching session against a tree.
