A Kung Fu bear was captured and is being held in captivity. A video has surfaced of the bear using his Kung Fu stick behind bars.
The bear is seen rocking a staff from side to side and around his neck, passing it from hand to hand and twisting it in front of him, while a voice off camera shouts “Kung Fu Panda!”
The rare Russian bear called Pamir, is playing with a wooden stick, like a “real master of kung fu” according to website of the Royev Ruchei Zoo in Krasnoyarsk where he is being held until he is sent to Siberia.
