Even with everything going on in the world, there’s still time for manners.

This grizzly bear made news when it was filmed picking up an orange traffic cone that was laying on its side.

The video was actually taken a few years ago when Michael Mauro was visiting Denali Park, Alaska. But it was posted to Instagram a few weeks back and has since become very popular.



It’s clear that the bear knew that the traffic cone was supposed to be standing up, and used his paw for leverage while it used its jaws to drag the cone upright.

Pretty smart animal.

The rumor is that this bear is named Freddy, and he walks this route every day. If that’s the case, he probably got used to seeing the cone upright and felt compelled to fix it.

Either way, color us impressed.
