An examination found that a bear cub found dead with signs of trauma this in Central Park this week was likely hit by a car, state officials said Tuesday.
At around 9:45 a.m, the cub was found beneath some bushes at 69th Street and West Drive by a park conservancy employee who maintains the park grounds.
In a scene seemingly right out of “Winnie the Pooh,” a curious and apparently hungry bear cub got his head stuck in a cookie jar he found in the trash in Ringwood, New Jersey late last week.
The cub, which weighed about 150 pounds, was hit Tuesday night on Route 202 in Branchburg. The driver of the car was not injured in the accident.
