That must have been an unbearable hangover ...

According to this Associated Press story in the Boston Globe, a black bear in Baker Lake, Washington raided camper's coolers - and went after the beer. Some thirty-six cans worth. (Had I not seen it in the Globe, I would have expected this to be a sailorjim special.)

This reminds me of the Callahan's Bar Halloween tale where Mike's costume is that of a rather sore bear - whenever someone bumped into him, he rather blatently winced, explaining that he was "a bar' tender."

Also worth noting - the bear in question insisted on Rainier beer.

The bear apparently got into campers' coolers and used his claws and teeth to puncture the cans. And not just any cans.

"He drank the Rainier and wouldn't drink the Busch beer," said Lisa Broxson, bookkeeper at the campground and cabins resort east of Mount Baker.

Fish and Wildlife enforcement Sgt. Bill Heinck said the bear did try one can of Busch, but ignored the rest.

"He didn't like that (Busch) and consumed, as near as we can tell, about 36 cans of Rainier."

Just goes to show that even Nature can't stomach Bush.
