Ever See A Bear Walk Like A Man? [VIDEO]

By: Sara

What does a bear do in the woods? Sometimes the answer is to go for a walk while standing upright. A little black bear is developing quite a following after a video surfaced of the animal walking on its back legs through a New Jersey neighborhood. The tape shows the bear very casually going for a stroll while checking out a few garbage cans and a tiny wooded area behind some houses. The footage almost doesn’t look real (like a short guy in a bear suit), but the Jefferson police department says it has received several calls about the bear from a variety of residents. Why would this bear choose to walk like a man? Apparently it is something the animal will do when its front paws are injured.
