Now that’s something you don’t see everyday.

According to WTKR, a bear got stuck on top of a truck that was hauling garbage to a North Carolina landfill. The hungry bear must’ve climbed into the truck when it was stopped and was trapped inside when the truck began moving again.

North Carolina police were receiving calls on Wednesday morning that “a bear was hanging off of a dump truck.”

The driver, who was unaware of his hitchhiker was pulled over by State Police. Once they rolled back the protective netting, the bear “hopped out of the truck and ran in the woods.”

Bears are cool.
