Is it a bear walking upright or a man in a bear suit?

That is the question that some residents asked themselves as a black bear moseyed through their Oak Ridge, New Jersey neighborhood.

The video shows the bear walking for an extended period of time on his hind legs, like a human.

Facebook user John Leyden posted the below video to his page, and it's clear that one of the bear's paws may be injured, which would explain the animal not wanting to walk on it.
