Caught on camera: Bear hitches ride on garbage truck

- It's hard to imagine how the bear even managed to climb up a garbage truck!

A firefighter was washing his crew's truck last month and captured this on cellphone video

According to U.S. Forest Service-Santa Fe National Forest, the driver picked up a dumpster and tilted it into the truck. He didn't know there was a bear in the dumpster. That is how the bear got on top of the truck.

The bear hung out for about an hour and then the garbage truck driver backed up to a tree, and the bear quickly scrambled off the truck and into the canyon.
