WEST MILFORD - New Jersey wildlife officials say there's been a sighting of a bipedal bear that has become a social media darling.
Fans of the injured bruin nicknamed Pedals had grown concerned because the animal had not been seen for several weeks.
But officials tell NJ.com that a resident saw the bear in West Milford on Dec. 21 and said it appeared to be in good health. The caller estimated that Pedals weighed roughly 350 pounds.
The bear first gained fame after it was spotted last year ambling around neighborhoods and caught in videos that were posted on social media and played on national television. Experts say the bear apparently has some sort of leg or paw injury that won't allow it to spend much time on all fours.
