We’ve got two silly animal videos today, courtesy of ITN (and neither are about those gay penguins who recently ‘broke up’).

First there are the waving bears of the Olympic Game Farm in Washington State, US. These retired Hollywood film bears (read: slave animals) are tame Kodiak bears who, when waved at by gawking tourists, politely wave back. Bit of a gimmick, but at least they no longer have to take orders from Steven Spielberg and can instead lie around waving at caravans of naked apes.

Check out the video here:

So… from a bit of news about animals who were forced into captivity and made to perform in a human environment to a wild animal that forced itself into someone’s house and onto the sofa for a bit of a snooze.

In New Zealand a baby seal flapped its way out of the wintery sea, across a main road, through the cat flap and onto the couch, where it was found watching Animal Planet and eating a box of Chocodiles. OK, I made that last bit up, but the rest is true.

See for yourself and have a nice weekend.
