Top-Five Stories

A bear became drunk after drinking 36 cans of beer in Seattle, Washington!

2004-08-20
The thirsty two years old bear, broke into coolers in a camp at Baker Lake Resort, and used his claws and teeth to open the cans, and so swallow down the beer. But even for a bear 36 cans of beer can be too much……

This amazing incident happened Wednesday 18 August in a campground at Baker Lake Resort, 80 miles (129 kilometres) northeast of Seattle (Washington 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 another place.

 

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!
