After the garbage truck driver noticed the stray bear, he pulled over by a tree, where Yogi fondly climbed off.

According to Johnson, "He took off into the canyon across the street after everyone cleared out."

Johnson said he kept his distance throughout.

"I often see bears out in the field," he told IE. "It's just typical wildlife and like any other wildlife should be left alone."
