Bear filmed riding in the back seat of a car

The bear seemed to be enjoying its unorthodox commute. Image Credit: YouTube / Grad Grad
The peculiar spectacle was picked up on camera by a motorist driving along a Russian highway.
Recorded in the central Russian city of Yekaterinburg, the footage shows the brown bear fidgeting around in the back of a Volga car before sticking its head out of the passenger window.

Despite the fact that Russia's famous Filatov circus, which specializes in performing bears, was in town at the time of the sighting circus head Julia Filatova maintains that it wasn't one of theirs.
"Our bears are much bigger," she said. "Normally little bears are kind and friendly. If it was more than a year old it wouldn’t have fit in such a car and certainly wouldn’t have gone inside happily."

When asked about the incident local police officials stated that they had no intention of arresting the driver because the bear had been wearing a seatbelt and that therefore no laws had been broken.

At least the bear was riding in the back seat where "small children" should be.

Maybe he was carpooling to work. Next week it will be the bear's turn to drive.

That would be perfectly legal here in America as we have the right to bear arms. In this case, the rest of the bear would just have be in the car with the arms.

We do not have Bears at all, well we have Drop Bears, but they are Marsupials. I rolled up my sleeves and donated to help this little fellow see another day after the Red Cross debacle. That was an unfair beat up, the Red Cross turned out to have excess stock!!!!

What a passenger and I was thinking this must be from Mum Russia! It was odd to see the bear chewing/mouthing on the hand of the owner!
