A black bear which walks on his hind legs like a human has become a huge social media star after being caught on video.
The bear, nicknamed Pedals, was seen in Oak Ridge, New Jersey, on Monday and filmed by resident Joey Esposito who then shared the video on social media.
Pedals the bear evidently has a permanently injured front paw and is missing the other one, which makes it difficult, if not impossible, for him to walk comfortably on all fours, experts say.
