Ricciardi crawled into the ventilation system and began dragging his way through the narrow space, assuming he had cleverly found his way to freedom. What the films do not show is how long this process lasts and how obvious it is for everyone else. When the police arrived, they could hear him crawling clearly over their heads and arrest him. At that point, they found he had some drug paraphernalia with them, which should not come as a surprise to anyone.

He walked politely, like everyone else, over sidewalks, probably thinking, "There's nothing to see here, fellow humans." The bear did not try to attack anyone, and wildlife experts said he had learned to walk upright to his front paws due to an injury , For two years, the citizens of Rockaway got used to carrying the bear and they called it "pedals."

In our hearts and minds pedals will still be a gentleman from New Jersey.
