Pedals, Beloved Bi-Pedal Bear, Shot Dead By NJ Hunters

Internet sensation Pedals, the injured bear that walked on its two hind legs, has been killed by hunters in New Jersey.

The Facebook page which has been tracking Pedals and hoping that he be moved to a sanctuary, confirmed the news on Friday.

From Facebook:

There are many hunters who feel Pedals should have been taken to sanctuary, many who felt he should have amnesty from the hunt, many who would never think to kill him and many who saw first hand when he was brought in to Greenpond station on Monday. These people were kind enough to share details with us.

PEDALS IS DEAD. The hunter who has wanted him dead for nearly 3 years had the satisfaction of putting an arrow through him, bragging at the station. The very place where they weighed him, examined his legs, confirmed it was “the bi-pedal”. Where there were two biologists on hand taking many many pictures. PEDALS IS DEAD.

I am so heart-broken!
