Wis. black bear wanders into grocery store, heads for beer cooler


Even the bears in Wisconsin are predictable. Time for the state to get a new shtick. When the animals start playing drunk, something is terribly wrong.

A 125-pound black bear wandered into a Hayward, Wis. grocery store Thursday and headed straight for the beer cooler. The bear came through the store's automatic doors.

The uninvited visitor made itself at home and climbed 12 feet up onto a shelf in the beer cooler and hung out there until wildlife officials came to the scene and tranquilized it.

No customers were injured in the incident and the bear didn't even damage the beer supply.
