Pedals was first spotted in the area last summer, but back then it wasn't certain that he could survive for long. The black bear was found to be missing part of one of his front limbs. Being short one paw would obviously make every task that much more of a challenge - but incredibly, he found a way to cope.
Not only did he adopt a new way of walking, as this recent sighting proves, he was evidently able to still forage for enough food to last him through the long, cold winter.
Here's Pedals now, captured on video this week strolling through a man's backyard.
