My thoughts as well.

I've seen documentaries and circus videos of walking bears... and the walk of this 'bear' just isn't right. Specifically, the legs are not moving relative to what should be the pelvis of the bear. That sort of gives it away that it's an adult with much longer legs walking in a bear suit.

That's very true, when you see something that is way out of place or that challenges your paradigm, it's almost as if what you're seeing is not real. I remember having opossum get in my house and when I first saw it I had to take a double look, because I just couldn't believe what I saw and that was just a known animal.

What was unbelievable about that is that I'm very good at keeping my doors shut and I know he can't get access to my attic, because I keep that well sealed also. However, turns out I had a cheap cloth-based exhaust vent on my dryer; that sucker is metal now :)

Seems to be walking abnormally fast and, at times, with too far a gait, for a black bear on its rear legs. The reach down into the garbage can seems suspect too.

So far we've had bats, birds, squirrels, chipmunks, and someone else's dog, that really set my mind to wonderin' :-? it had a tag and lived on a near by street, he broke his chain. Funny though he was a Siberian husky, and was a dead ringer for my husky who had died about 15 years earlier, right down to the brown eyes... so we hung out for a while before I returned him, that was freaky deeky.

Could very well be a fake- people are extremely crafty nowadays, but hell, there are dogs that can walk like that...

Suffice to say that if I see a bear on twos walking anywhere near the trail...

I did not know that bears could walk on their hind legs for that long. I know they can walk on two legs but the only ones I've ever seen were either sitting or walking/running on all fours.

If this is real, that is one neat video.

I had a bear stand up in some brush one time to get a better look at me. That was a great experience. But if the bear I saw started walking towards me like the the bear in the video I think I would have soiled myself.

The last bear I saw on the AT in Ga was walking upright coming down the mountain, just to the right of the trail. I was within feet of him, and when he saw me, he went down on all fours and ran. I've seen them walk upright a lot of times in the Smokies.

If you look closely at this video you'll see this bear is missing a front leg which probably makes her want to walk on two legs.

http://www.unexplained-mysteries.com/viewvideo.php?id=m3_tch2HTEY&tid=223396The best footage, by far, is the link Tripp provided. What really sticks out are the very short hind legs and thus the very short strides. There's no real scale, but I really am curious what stride length bears generally have when walking on hind legs. Also what sticks out is that the fore paws don't move, probably would be an unstable force, since they're not exactly designed for walking on hind legs; notice its arms are usually along the body or out front.

As Chair-man mentioned, the bear in the above link is missing one paw, which is probably a major factor in why this bear has put in such an effort to be relatively proficient at up right walking. I wonder how common that is among bears that are missing a front paw or maybe a severly injured/maimed front paw.

Why are there so many grainy photos:confused: :D

Notice how the bear does not put weight on its right paw when it goes down on all four; it seems to be an amputation, at least a partial.

The short quirky motion initially threw me off because I didn't yet know about the shortened injured right leg. You'll also see the stumpy injured right leg of the bear.

Certainly unusual. I wonder if this bear, and I think it's a female, will pass this trait onto her young and other bears.

I once read a dog training book where it said it advised against teaching your dog to walk on 2 legs because it's painful for dogs to stay in an upright position for long periods times because of the way their spines are built in animals. Their spines are not like humans.
But for this bear, the uncomfortableness of standing up outweighed the uncomfortableness of walking with a gimp leg.

After doing an overnighter myself ending in Yosemite Valley I witnessed two very distraught foreigners who had come back from an overnight at Little Yosemite Valley to their shredded convertible top on their car filling out a report with the NP Rangers. Black bears opened it up like a tin sardine can. All the steel supports of the convertible top were bent too and two tires had been flattened from bites. As I stood there marveling at the damage here's the exchange I overheard between the NP rangers and car owners:

Ranger: No sir the National Park Service isn't responsible for the damage. Yes sir, you'll have to place a report with your car insurance company.
Distraught Car Owner: I'm suing this National park and whoever else is responsible.
Ranger: You were aware of the law you can't store food in your car overnight? This information was it not provided to you? Did you not leave food in your car overnight?
Distraught Car Owner: (In broken English)But but ahh ah we didn't leave any food in the car overnight.
Rangers: Well folks, is that your half eaten by the bears cooler with all the left over broken jars of peanut butter, jelly, cheese, chicken, steaks, alcohol, etc. Are these your grocery bags of bear ravaged food on the ground? They seem to have come from your car? - as another Ranger picks up a grocery receipt for the ravaged groceries paid for with a credit card and signed by Joe Smith.
Other Ranger: Sir, you said you name is Joe Smith, correct?
Distraught Car Owner: (Angry)Ah yes, that's right.
Other Ranger: Well, sir here is the receipt for all those groceries paid by and signed by a Joe Smith.

Click on the first link (gawker.com) and view the 2nd video of that page. Clearly this is not fake, note the stance when positioning itself on all fours. I do not perceive a human mimicking. Note at the end the video the bear sticks its tongue out which if you've ever seen a bear lapping up birdseed from a feeder or honey molasses you would mot have any doubt it's a bears tongue.

Survival by means of pedalism amongst North American bears makes me wonder... Is bipedalism practiced more outside of feeding by females rather than males when disabled since male bears weigh more. How are these bears losing or injuring their limbs in the first place? One could speculate the loss of these bears limbs occurred as an adult, possibly to a trap. Many moons ago, when I used to trap with an elderly friend and a very skilled trapper, on more than one occasions I recall witnessing upon our return to the traps we set, where bobcats had gnawed their paw off to escape capture.

Was the bear born with a deformed limb? What would be the chance of survival in the wild as a newborn with this disability? If born with or encountered this deformity at a very young age and the bear performed upright walking, the bears spine and pelvis most likely would have been altered somewhat and possibly changed shape to accommodate upright walking (bipedalism).
I would think, bipedalism would influence a change in muscle development, since the bears muscle usage in the legs would be reversed, the quads would be used more than the hamstrings when practicing bipedalism. Center of mass would have to adjust significantly I would suspect, possibly causing slight curvature of the spine. Fact is, that is a lot of upper body weight for the core to support. One could only guess the amount of any long term negative impact. I may be wrong, but eventually pain would be inevitable.
Without trying to theorize, these bears have exhibited the ability to adapt and survive without human intervention.

Below are some videos, articles and images of 3 legged bears that some may find of interest
The article below is the unfortunate outcome of human intervention, feeding bears. Just one of the many reasons why we should continue to practice and educate others of the importance of Leave NO Trace and improper camping habits.

Exactly. Just nature evolving to fill a need. You've seen people with no hands paint with their toes or their mouths. What's the diff? He/She had an injured or lame front paw, so she improvises or dies. This is all very natural. But yes, odd as crap to see and I would likely have a minor fit if I saw it live while out hiking.

Peddles may be the poster child for the anti bear movement in NJ but at least on the AT there was some sort of need for bear control on the AT. Prior to the bear hunt, bears were a very major problem at the AT shelters with numerous aggressive bear incidents. High Point shelter had a mug shot of a problem bear that actively would charge any hikers with food all the way into the shelter. The next shelter south, Rutherford had similar bear issues along with Brink Pochuck and Wayawanda (which had a person killed by a bear). Trap and truck doesn't work and unfortunately encroaching suburbia means bears are going to hang out in the limited green strips which include the AT.

In Georgia, there is a bear hunting season between October-January. While not a hunter myself, I am in support of it because it keeps the bears wary of humans.

I have never had a problem with bears while camping out well over 100 nights in the North Georgia mountains. I have seen signs of them many times with scat and such around the camping area. But with proper food hanging techniques, they will leave you alone.

In North Carolina, where bears are not hunted, it is quite the opposite from Georgia. While only one state over, the bears act totally different. I actually had a huge male bear walk into my campsite as I was sitting around the fire while camping in Panthertown Valley on Memorial Day. No fear at all until I dropped a bomb on him.

My one proven method for dealing with animals while camping is a cherry bomb. If fake dog barking won't drive them off, I simply toss a cherry bomb in their direction.

Works every time and no one gets hurt.

That was wrong. He was already handicapped. How much of a threat could he possibly be? I feel certain I could outrun him myself and I get winded getting to the top of my stairs.

Good thing it will likely take me the rest of my life to get as far north as NJ, so not an immediate issue for me. I did look at air horns online. Someone on here once said that a big male was totally unfazed by a marine air horn when confronted on the trail. Can't remember now who said it or where they were on the trail at the time.

However, I if I had to pick my poisons... I'll take a ranger "ticket" or whatever they could possibly throw at me any day versus a chewed up leg, arm or worse. I'm not as afraid of a ranger doing me bodily harm as I am a bear. Fireworks wins.

In the fly-in remote fishing camps of Ontario the locals often use the small packages of linked strands of firecrackers to scare off black bears when they come into camp. I always just yelled at them and they'd leave, I always equated them to big raccoons in their manners. I've never had to bang pots yet. ....but firecrackers hmm. The black bears have been getting more bold, hmmm.

I carry a marine ACR whistle while in bear territory. Its designed for boater to use in storms and is about as loud as a whistle can get . I would expect its gets the bears attention and is a lot quicker than a cherry bomb.

Unfortunately the bears can get trained inadvertently to ignore almost any deterrent if there is enough reward. There is huge landfill adjacent to the Mahoosucs in NH (other side of the ridge from the AT). They originally banned hunting and when a fresh trash truck came in the bears would chase the truck to get the fresh load when dumped. The landfill responded by bring a loader over to immediately cover the fresh trash. The bears started attacking the loader. After a few close calls they allowed hunting to start again nearby. It took awhile but the number of bear incidents went way down.

That's only true if you consider the Daily Mail to be actual news.

In my experience, when it comes to credibiltiy that tabloid is somewhere between Star and the National Enquirer.
