AKRON, Ohio — A bear at the Akron Zoo went viral after being caught on camera scratching an itch.

Cheyenne, a grizzly bear that came to the Akron Zoo in 2013, became a celebrity this week when a video of her itching her behind by the glass window of her exhibit was shared all over the world.

The video was even featured on Good Morning America during its Play of the Day segment with "Shake Your Groove Thing" played in the background Thursday morning.

After gaining internet fame, Cheyenne and her brother Jackson might see an increase of visitors at their exhibit hoping for more hilarious antics.
