    Bear cub walks into Sears

    The bear turned out to be a she, about a year old and weighing 120 to 125 pounds, said Dan Puhala, a wildlife conservation officer with the Pennsylvania Game Commission.


    The bear was carted out of the store and put in a waiting bear trap trailer in the parking lot around 10 p.m. to the "awes" of a gathered crowd who were taking whatever pictures and videos they could with cell phones and iPads.
    "He's cute!" said Amanda Keating, 29, of Springdale Borough. "I love that bear.
    The cub roamed through the store for about 10 minutes with Frazer police officers in pursuit. It eventually was chased into a double door at one of the entrances that had its power cut, trapping itself, he said.
    The bear spent most of the next hour lying on the floor, but occasionally strolled around the enclosed area.
    A Pennsylvania Game Commission officer climbed a ladder and shot the bear with a tranquilizer at about 9:35 p.m.
    But before it was rendered unconscious, the automatic doors into Sears swung open and the bear strolled back into store.
    Police followed the animal at a distance and it soon fell asleep.
    The bear was wearing a collar with a tracking device and could be part of a research project, Puhala said. He wasn't sure where the bear was from, but said it came to Frazer most likely from New Florence and not from anywhere in Allegheny County.

    Poor thing. One of the witnesses said there were people chasing the cub with their cars.

    That's un-bear-able.

    Bear cub walks into Sears

    Asks the manager "Do you sell hiking boots or running shoes here?"

    "Hiking boots" the manager responds.

    "I'm in the right place then"

    I am guessing that Sears doesn't take honey or honey combs as a means of currency.
