A New Jersey black bear nicknamed “Pedals” because he walks upright on his two hind legs has emerged months after his last sighting.
Officials say Pedals has an injured leg or paw that doesn’t allow him to walk comfortably on all fours.
The elusive New Jersey bear that became an internet sensation after video emerged of him walking upright has made an encore appearance on social media.
Oak Ridge resident Joey Esposito was taking a water break from mowing his neighbor’s front yard Monday afternoon when he saw the bear through his kitchen window.
“Who is on her property?” he said he asked himself. He then realized “that’s the bear.”
