You know if you're from central New York when you drive by a black bear in the back of a truck.

Tammy Britten saw the bear on Route 233 and 69. "I'm not sure where he came from but the truck went right through Rome with him on the back" Tammy wrote on Facebook.

There were concerns from people on Facebook about why the bear wasn't in a cage but Tammy says "he looked like he was out of it."

He looked like he was out of it because he was. The bear wasn't alive. It was actually stuffed and on its way to a scout meeting. "It looked so real," says Tammy.
