Hard to say. But part of me wants to say its a pig. If you look at the head it looks like it's got a snout

My immediate reaction was pig. This photo was taken on the border of Schenectady and saratoga county kinda odd for a pig to be there. Between the couple dozen people that iv texted the photo to were split right down the middle bear and pig.

It is odd for a pig to be in the woods but an escapee goes wild fast. A Guy near me had one on camera a few years ago

Boy, I'd like to say pig.  It almost looks like a cloven hoof, but I think it's pad, and it doesn't have a swine tail.  I have to say small bear, big ears.   ;D

Did you send the picture to the DEC?
I still say that it's a pig.  Long pointed ear and a bear does not stand with  its front legs together like that .. And I see hooves not pads..
Just my opinion..

I see a bear. Short stubby tail, legs are too big around for a pig, which would taper down to a much narrower hoof. You can only see one leg in the front as it is walking, and the pad of the front foot is wide. I don't think it's a young bear either, not huge but decent sized.

One big problem with IR cameras when the animal is moving the picture gets blurry and they just don't show the detail; with a flash camera in color it would be obvious.

I see two legs in the front that are very close together.
