No one knows for sure how the bear got onto the top of the garbage truck, but at least they know it got down safely. The driver carefully backed up to a tree and let the bear scamper down from there, with everyone escaping unharmed.
The incident took place near Los Alamos, New Mexico, and was filmed by Caleb Johnson. He got on the local news, the bear got away safely, and the driver got to finish his day. Win, win, win.
