We may be similar to monkeys, but who knew bears were so similar to us?

Check out this bear, strolling around an otherwise ordinary New Jersey cul-de-sac. He's walking around on two paws, like a human.

More importantly, he's walking around like he's the mayor of the block, looking into a garbage can, presumably to see if the neighbors have any crumbs from the family-sized bag of Rold Gold left or any final drops of a room temperature 'Share a Coke with Kevin' bottle to wash it down.

Of course, there's also the possibility this is fake, too, because, apparently, sometimes people perpetuate hoaxes on the Internet. Yeah, we were shocked, too.
