There’s a reason they chose a bear to be the star of so many cartoon shows, from Yogi to Baloo to the Three Bears in those Looney Tunes shorts, because very few critters act as humanistic as bears.

When a bear stands up and gives you a wave you can almost see your big, hairy uncle doing the same thing, and when they hold a newspaper, sit at a picnic table waiting for a basket full of goodies to come their way, or simply stick their tongue out at the photographer we instantly imagine a friend or family member doing the same thing.

Enjoy this selection of images showing Bears Doing Human Things, put together by the animal loving folks at Bored Panda.

There's an old Western tradition of attributing human behavior to bears. About a year ago, I read the book The Bear: History of a Fallen King, which is a history of the bear as a symbol. Medieval Europeans believed that bears were human's closest relatives among animals. They also commonly believed that bears and humans were interfertile--that they could successfully mate with each other and produce young.
