Here is a funny story out on CNN. As a Busch beer drinker, I am offended. I believe I will file a lawsuit against CNN, The Forest Service, and Rainier Beer, and of course the bear.
Bear guzzles 36 beers, passes out at campground
Thursday, August 19, 2004 Posted: 7:38 AM EDT (1138 GMT)

The bear used his claws and teeth to open the beer cans.
SEATTLE, Washington (Reuters) -- A black bear was found passed out at a campground in Washington state recently after guzzling down three dozen cans of a local beer, a campground worker said on Wednesday.

"We noticed a bear sleeping on the common lawn and wondered what was going on until we discovered that there were a lot of beer cans lying around," said Lisa Broxson, a worker at the Baker Lake Resort, 80 miles (129 kilometers) northeast of Seattle.

The hard-drinking bear, estimated to be about two years old, broke into campers' coolers and, using his claws and teeth to open the cans, swilled down the suds.

It turns out the bear was a bit of a beer sophisticate. He tried a mass-market Busch beer, but switched to Rainier Beer, a local ale, and stuck with it for his drinking binge.

Wildlife agents chased the bear away, but it returned the next day, said Broxson.

They set a trap using as bait some doughnuts, honey and two cans of Rainier Beer. It worked, and the bear was captured for relocation.

Doughnuts and beer? Everyone knows they don't go together. I'm sure that the bear got caught because he was hanging around looking for the pistachios!

chocolate covered doughnuts and beer are very good. (well maybe not for breakfast.. or at least my breakfast anyway)

try dunking them doughnuts in a bowl of beer. mmm, mighty good. it's better to use the cake type doughnuts, but the regular ol' glazed are good also.

I got to wondering ...

The bear was two years old. How many people-years is that? I bet you it was less than 21.

Do you think the USDA/Forest Service will charge him with underage drinking, campground intoxication, and resisting arrest?
