I read a funny article in the paper last night of a bear in Juneau, Alaska, walking into a bar. As the story goes...
Bartender Ariel Svetlik-McCarthy says she freaked out and yelled,
YOU CAN'T BE IN HERE!"
The bear complied, leaving the bar within seconds. (If only all unwelcome bar guests were this obliging).
State biologist Ryan Scott says it's rare for black bears to go inside Juneau businesses, but they have wandered inside homes before.
He said the staff did a great job, and it was good news the bear left.
State wildlife officials have killed two nuisance bears in Juneau this summer.
