JEFFERSON TOWNSHIP, N.J. — Video that shows a bear walking upright like a human is taking the Internet by storm.

It seems hard to believe at first. Just a human in a bear costume, right?

Ian Bohman, who recorded the video, said he saw the bear trotting around like a human as he was leaving his home at about 5:45 a.m. Monday. “It just walked by like I wasn’t there,” he commented under the video on YouTube.

Several other videos showing the bear have surfaced — including a post on Facebook with much clearer video.

John Leyden, whose neighbor took the above video, speculated that the bear may have injured its front paw — which could explain why he’s opting for the two-legged approach to walking.

A woman at the Jefferson Police Department told the New York Daily News that they were aware of an injured bear in the area.

So what do you think? Is it real?
