Watch: Bear Walks Like Human


I feel really bad for this bear which has obviously lost a leg in some sort of mishap. However, good for it for adapting. It's so odd-looking you expect the suit to unzip and a guy to walk out. Seeing this out in nature would definitely inspire a double take.

  3. That's so sad and sweet and creepy at the same time.
    Poor thing probably got caught in a bear trap.

  13. Right, there are bears walking upright in all the states that have had Bigfoot sightings.

  14. There has got to be a genetic link between that bear and the guys at the Atlanta Eagle! They even walk the same! ;-)

  15. That's freaky amazing- I wonder is this how the whole Big Foot myth got started?

  16. What the hell is that guy doing in that tree?

  17. I wonder if the cub will start walking upright like its mother? They learn a lot by example. And I don't think those were mosquitoes - they may be those huge deer flies - those things are monstrous and give a really bad bite.

  18. That's very painful to watch, for me, there's nothing funny about it.
    Simply amazing and deeply touching.

  19. I hope the bear is able to get enough food. I am very concerned about it, though. But the spirit and determination that bear has is such an inspiration.

  20. In so many ways this just breaks my seeing a polio child walk with least this mother bear is coping but her arthritis in old age.......
