A bear with a taste for brew broke into a cooler in a Washington state campground and proceeded to get wasted. He was found the following morning by Fish and Game passed out on top of a
pile of empties.
According to NBC News, The bear had a taste for craft beer. “He drank the Rainier and wouldn’t drink the Busch beer,” said Lisa Broxson, bookkeeper at the campground and cabins resort east of
Fish and Wildlife enforcement Sgt. Bill Heinck said the bear did try one can of Busch, but ignored the rest. The beast then consumed about 36 cans of Rainier.
A wildlife agent tried to chase the bear from the campground but the animal just climbed a tree to sleep it off for another four hours. Agents finally herded the bear away, but it returned the next
Agents then used a large, humane trap to capture it for relocation, baiting the trap with the usual: doughnuts honey and, in this case, two open cans of Rainier.
“This is a new one on me,” Heinck said. “I’ve known them to get into cans, but nothing like this. And it definitely had a preference.”
Let this be a lesson for people camping in bear country. Secure your coolers and don’t get the wildlife drunk.
