TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey black bear that walked upright on its hind legs due to an injury, and became a social media darling, is believed to be dead.
Officials with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection on Monday said they believed the bipedal bear nicknamed Pedals had been killed by a hunter. The state's first expanded black bear hunt in more than 30 years ended on Saturday.
