We’ve all heard a joke which begins with “A bear walks into a bar” but this one is no joke
A bear entered a hotel lobby, passed through it and entered the bar in the city of Juneau, Alaska. This may sound like the beginning of a joke, but it’s a true story with a happy ending. The black bear entered the bar in the early hours some weeks ago.
The shocked bartender Ariel Svetlik-McCarthy screamed at the wild animal, which, to the astonishment of the people in the bar and lobby, actually complied with her yelling and left.
The fearless bartender screamed “No bear!” and “Get out! No! You can’t be here!” and the bear calmly walked out of the bar without getting a beer.
The curious incident was actually caught on video and was commented on by local wildlife experts who claimed that even though there were a couple of bears which needed to be put down as they posed danger to locals, it is rare that a wild bear actually attempts (and succeeds) to walk into a building.
