Yes, he's a big black bear…and yes, he walks around on his two hind legs.
You see, a while back, Pedals injured his front right paw. According to BuzzFeed, officials say his foot was probably hurt during a car accident. But despite all odds, the resilient bear has managed to get around pretty well. He's adapted to walk around on his back legs, occasionally bending down to pick up food. Then, he's able to put more weight on his front left paw.
Pedals has become quite a celebrity in New Jersey and area residents like to update their neighbors on how the big cutie is doing via his own Facebook page.
But why should the public be doing that? Well, wildlife officials strongly believe that Pedals should remain in the wild, especially since he's getting along so well.
Recently, Joey Esposito caught Pedals on one of his neighborhood strolls…he seems just fine!
While Pedals isn't as silly as this dancing cutie, he did walk his way right into my heart.
