Bear cub strolls through Oregon store
Ashland, Ore. — Some shoppers at an Oregon drug store were surprised by a bear cub scurrying down the aisles.
Witnesses say the cub first showed up Sunday at a nearby hotel, hopped out a window and crossed the street to the Rite Aid in Ashland, a city 15 miles north of the California border.
KGW reports that customers took photos and video until police arrived and scooped the little bear into a shopping cart.
The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is holding the cub until it can be moved to a rehab center or a zoo.
There was no sign of its mother. Authorities say the cub cannot be returned to the wild because of its contact with humans.
