Wonder Bear, a beloved Jersey Shore mascot, is back home with its rightful owners after parts of the bear were swiped by thieves more than a week ago.

Gillian's Wonderland Pier in Ocean City tells NBC10's Ted Greenberg that the stolen parts were returned yesterday and a man received a $500 reward for bringing the bear back home.

On July 14, workers found only Wonder Bear's head, feet and one hand after burglars broke into a room where the costume was stored. The mascot's torso and other hand were taken by the thieves.

Gillian's says the man found the missing mascot's parts in a dumpster.

Wonder Bear is now being dry cleaned before he'll take his place back on the boardwalk.
