Video: Pedals the Bipedal Bear Returns!

A bear in New Jersey that boasts the uncanny ability to walk on its hind legs has reemerged after a long winter that left some wondering if he would ever be seen again.

Dubbed 'Pedals,' the bipedal bear became an internet sensation last fall when video emerged of the creature's unique way of walking.

Wildlife officials explained that the bipedal nature of the bear was due to injuries it sustained to its front paws, leading many to worry that it might not survive the winter, especially since the last sighting happened in December.

Thankfully the lack of Pedals sightings over the last few months appear to have been due to the creature hibernating as new footage has emerged of the animal enjoying a leisurely stroll along a trail near a golf course.

For those who have not seen Pedals in action before, the sight is both breathtaking and bewildering as the animals seemingly walks with ease on its hind legs and covers a tremendous distance.

Were it not certain that the creature was a bonafide bear, skeptical observers would be inclined to insist that Pedals was simply a man in a suit based on how it walks.

Alas, it's only Pedals looking for some food and perhaps an another fifteen minutes of fame.
