No, your eyes are not deceiving you…
Only in Russia could an unsuspecting motorist come across a massive brown bear riding in a motorcycle sidecar.
Nicholas Pasynkov was driving in the Russian city of Syktyvkar when he saw the bear “calmly riding in a motorcycle sidecar that had been designed to resemble the face of a wolf,” UPI reported.
Pasynkov shared a quick video of the unusual encounter on YouTube:
The news agency noted that the animal was indeed real, a trained bear performing in a traveling circus organized by the Polar Wolves bike club.
A second video shows the bear actually climbing into the sidecar — a trainer can be seen rewarding him with a treat for accomplishing the task.
