I CAN BEAR-LY WORK OUT HOW TO RIDE THIS.

JUAN, who is smarter than your average bear, heads for this bike after breaking out of his enclosure at Berlin Zoo.

But the six-and-a-half foot tall Andean spectacled bear seemed unsure about how to get on the thing.

It really was a 'Great Escape' that Juan pulled off, using a log to float across a moat surrounding his pen and climbing a tree. He headed straight for the children's playground, where parents snatched up their children and fled as zoo staff tried to hold him back with brooms. Eventually the zoo's vet shot him with a tranquilliser gun and the sleeping 17-stone bear was carried back to his enclosure.
