A video posted recently to YouTube captured a bear walking upright like a human in New Jersey.

In the video, the bear takes a walk across the street, looks into a trash can, and eventually wanders into the woods.

The New York Daily News reached out to the Jefferson Police Department. A woman told police they had seen the video, and there is an injured bear that has been seen around Jefferson.

Bears with injured paws often walk on their hind legs, the report says.

The video has been watched over 332,000 times on YouTube and several images have been shared on Twitter and Facebook.
