The bear is being monitored by New Jersey Fish and Wildlife and it is expected to make a full recovery.
A bear walking upright like a man is caught on video as he strolls through a N.J. neighborhood. While folks first thought this was a hoax and nothing more than a man in a bear suit, experts say it is the real deal and they think they know the reason the bear is walking upright like a human, according to NJ. com on Aug. 7.
The video has gone viral of this bear walking through Jefferson Township like he belongs there just as much as anyone else. Many people question whether this is the real thing or a hoax, like the title of a Buzz Feed article today, which asks if the bear is for real. Experts assure folks this is a real bear walking on its hind legs.
Tracy Leaver, who is the executive director of Woodlands Wildlife Range warns that this bear is injured, so be aware that it “needs to be left alone.” This is why he is walking upright and although it looks bizarre, the bear is hurt and this is how he needs to walk at this time.
