The bear needs more enrichment - more things to do to keep his mind occupied. Maybe you could write a letter to the zoo expressing your concern about this behaviour and suggesting that they provide more stimulation for him.<br><br>
Though based on my experience with a chimpanzee who used to rock while sitting, the bear will probably continue to do this behaviour even if they provide enrichment activities for him because after the enrichment is over, he'll still have nothing to do but continue this habit. You can't provide enrichment activities 24 hours a day, usually because they're food based.<br><br><br><br>
It's so sad that that's the bear's life.
