Video: Bear cub invades Alaska supermarket

  • 21/10/2011

Some supermarket shoppers were treated to Alaska's version of a bear market last weekend.

A small black bear cub walked in the front door of Tatsuda's IGA in Ketchikan.

The scared animal found its way to a produce cooler.

Meat department manager Joe Stollar responded to the PA announcement with a net because he misheard the announcement to say there was a bird in the store.

Authorities suspect it was an orphaned bear since its mother wasn't nearby.

Stollar says the tiny bear was just scared and trying to hide.

A customer captured the bear, and it was sent out the store's back door into the woods.

Several thousand dollars of ruined produce was donated to a livestock owner.
