"American black bears may be able to recognize things they know in real life, such as pieces of food or humans, when looking at a photograph of the same thing. This is one of the findings of a study which involved a black bear called Migwan and a computer screen."
Again, science is revealing that animals other than human beings can use abstract thinking to assist them in survival. Recognition of symbols or images that represent real things is the first determinant of abstract reasoning.
For people that watch television with their animals recognizing things on the screen is no surprise. Dogs recognize other dogs and other animals on the TeeVee and often react to these images vigorously.
It all prompts me to remember the totally off subject comparison Ernest Hemingway made between big Black Bears and Humans. He said something like: "we should always remember that we all sit down to take a shit like big black Bears in the forest!"
