VIDEO: Bear trapped on garbage truck traveling down NC highway


WINDSOR, N.C. (WNCN/CNN Newsource) — Here’s a scary sight for motorists in eastern North Carolina — a bear riding a garbage truck down the highway in Bertie County.

And if you think that’s scary for other drivers, imagine how the bear felt.

It wasn’t taking a joy ride, the poor thing was stuck under some netting.

When police pulled the truck over, the driver said he had no idea a bear had climbed into his truck.

As soon as the netting was pulled back, the bear hopped out and scampered into the woods in Bertie County.
