Bear walks like a human – level 3

29-06-2023 15:00

Early one morning, a bear was walking around a neighbourhood like a human in New Jersey, USA. Ian Bowman from Oak Ridge spotted the animal and quickly took out his phone to record the unusual sight.

The bear was blissfully unaware of being filmed as he walked on his hind legs and took a casual stroll. After Ian uploaded the video online, other people in the neighbourhood reported that they had seen the same bear performing that same stunt.

Difficult words: spot (see), blissfully (happily), unaware (not knowing what is happening), hind (situated at the back), stroll (a walk), stunt (something unusual).

You can watch the video news lower on this page.

What could have drawn the bear to walk like a human in this suburban neighbourhood?
