An Alaskan brown bear (photo for illustration).
incident happened Wednesday 18 August in a campground at Baker Lake Resort, 80
miles (129 kilometres) northeast of
state in US).
According to reports from rangers (wildlife agents) at the
camp, the black bear was sleeping when they found him.
The bear seemed to be sophisticated in his taste. He tried a
mass-market Busch beer first, but switched to Rainier Beer, a local ale.
A ranger tried
to chase the bear from the campground, but the animal just climbed a tree to
sleep it off for another four hours. The rangers
managed to chase the bear away, but it returned the next morning. They set
a trap using as bait some doughnuts, honey and two cans of Rainier Beer. They
succeeded with the trick. The hard-drinking bear was captured and moved to
36 beer or
not 36 beer? Bear or
no t bear.......? I just say shakebeer, or even better
SHAKEBEAR! So far I could see bears
have something in common with us humans at one point: they like beer, and they
get hangovers too!
