A startled bear perhaps hungry for a plasma TV broke into a Circuit City store in Colorado Springs this morning.
"It's been pretty jumping this morning," ...
The ursine intruder shattered a glass sliding door to enter a customer pickup area and cracked a second glass door, before fleeing into a nearby residential neighborhood and disappearing.
"When I called my assistant manager, luckily the cops were still here and they verified my story,"...
It's been a wild time in the Springs, after residents reported see what might have been an African lion or a big dog Monday, triggering a safari by law enforcement and wildlife experts.

Looking for iPhones in all the wrong places!
Did the sales people ignore the bear? They’re good at that.
The bear was probably fleeing some spandex clad crazed bicyclists.
No, they didn’t ignore him. They tried to sell him an extended warranty, and then refused to let him go until he paid for the broken door.
Seems the libtards in both Colorado Springs and Boulder are getting their wish of living in harmony with wildlife, the only problem is the wildlife don’t seem to want to live in harmony with them.
I turned on my heel and walked out. The guy followed me saying, "Sir! Shall I ring this up? Where are you going? Sir?" I never looked back.
A couple of days ago, I opened the front door to find a year old bear standing in front of the storm door. After it went back into the yard, I followed it, clapped my hands, and said, “shoo, shoo.” It ran off.
I never, ever, speak to adult bears.
Seems there's a lesson in there about trying to coexist with radical Islam...
“As far as we know the bear is still in the area but it not a threat to anyone,” Whitlock said.
Mt Whitlock...I’ll be the judge of that. So should I go pet it if it comes into my yard?...can my children frolic with him until someone captures him?...LOL....
You make a good point and I agree.
Seems like you're one of those FRetards who post without knowing WTF they're talking about....
The photo shows a very small bear. A mauling or two from a bear the size of a small pickup truck might evoke different reactions.
Hah! A little touchy are we?
Bears aren’t usually much trouble this early in the season. But for August-October,...
BTW, I found that even electric fences don’t always stop bears. ...depends on how trashy your neighbors are (or not, see north-south Range differences), and consequently, how frequent/persistent visits from the animals will be. Brenneke slugs from short shotguns (for speedy target acquisition and pointing characteristics) at close range seem to be the most likely effective, last-resort or hiking defensive measure.
Just sick of FRetards....
hmmph... that’s where I bought my computer system a few months ago.
The bigger adult bears take the best rural places which forces the smaller bears away.
When the PETA DOW types do their ‘catch and release’ program, the bears will likely be back within a week.
“Here’s a mop — clean up the bear shit”.
It’s funny, you know. Some of the women up here go on about the special knowledge they have of the bear. They have ways with animals, you see. The surface of my tea ripples when they walk by (the women—not the bear). ...reminds me of Jurassic Park.
But when the bear come in October, the same people pull all of their pets inside, leave all of their garbage outside, and lock the doors.
Hey-I know that bear-he usually sleeps ‘til noon but before it’s dark he has every picnic basket that’s in Jellystone park.
Yes, the PETA type and those wanting to live in harmony with bears and such usually don’t live where they’re affected by them and those that do too often make the animals more of a problem by feeding them or leaving garbage accessible to them, they’re not real bright.
During Pipeline construction a bear would wander by now and then. A wolf, too. A bear got into the camp, into the showers module and was hanging around drinking water out of the toilets like a big dog when somebody just getting up and on his way to breakfast in the mess hall stopped by to brush his teeth. Nobody got excited; just another day in the Brooks Range.
I lived not too far from that store. It must have come down hwy 83 from Black Forest during the night. Or.... now that I think about it...it might have come from the Air Force Academy and crossed hwy 25.
But there are bears and mountain lions in Black Forest sooo...
I have several friends that live in the forest and they have close encounters with wildlife all the time. One evening a mountain lion walked right passed their back porch while they were sitting on it. -A bit unnerving to say the least.
A bear broke into CC a while ago. It traded to $2/share today.
No doubt! lol
Thanks george76 for the ping.
No, bears for pets, get a kitten.
Still it is fun to see them, when you are safe and can just watch.
Be careful, there may be a mother nearby.
Your photo is perfect for this thread.
