"SEATTLE, Washington (Reuters) -- A black bear was found passed out at a campground in Washington state recently after guzzling down three dozen cans of a local beer, a campground worker said on Wednesday."
[ ... ]
"The hard-drinking bear, estimated to be about two years old, broke into campers' coolers and, using his claws and teeth to open the cans, swilled down the suds.
"It turns out the bear was a bit of a beer sophisticate. He tried a mass-market Busch beer, but switched to Rainier Beer, a local ale, and stuck with it for his drinking binge.
"Wildlife agents chased the bear away, but it returned the next day, said Broxson.
"They set a trap using as bait some doughnuts, honey and two cans of Rainier Beer. It worked, and the bear was captured for relocation."
:p
Hmmmm... I wonder if that was really a bear, or if perhaps it was a... panther? (g,d&rlh)

Dude should've tried this wickedly strong Texas brew, "Steel Reserve", could've gotten high without consuming so much liquid.

(And it seems he should also have been in that other thread, "Harold and Kumar go to White Castle").
