It’s OK — The Bear Was Wearing His Seat Belt
The law in Russia is that bears can be driven in cars, but only if they're wearing a seat belt. This is true.
It happened in Yekaterinburg, Russia, recently, when a driver caught this footage while going down the highway. The bear is sticking its head out the window like it's a dog, and having a great old time. He appears to be riding shotgun.
The great part is that the Central European News tried to discover the origin of the bear, and despite some promising leads, struck out. First, the Filatov Circus happened to be in the area, but they denied any knowledge of the bear.
But Julia Filatova, head of the circus, said this bear in the video isn’t one of hers. Filatova also said she didn’t have any beefs with the car-riding bear.
“Our bears are much bigger. Normally little bears are kind and friendly,” she said. “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.”
The Yekaterinburg Zoo also denied any affiliation to the bear. The Russian police said that the bear is cool, as long as its wearing its seat belt, and not littering.
