Agents then used a large, humane trap to capture it for relocation, baiting the trap with the usual: doughnuts, honey and, in this case, two open cans of Rainier. That did the trick.

After the bear consumed a case and a half of beer... they should have tried to bait him with a bag of white castles. Would have worked for me. :-)

"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.

LOL!!

Rainier should make an ad from this.

I only heard "Ein Prozit" (sp) the times I was in Germany and people were drinking beer, and I speak very little German, but I think you are saying that the bear must be from Berlin....

Dangerous mixture...following an all night drinking binge, bear - with incredible case of the munchies - meets environmentalist hiker on scenic nature trail.

I can see it on Animal Planet.

LOL!

Burping vears! Wouldn't want to see em hung over, though!

A friend of mine told me a story... he had been transferred out here a few years earlier from Pennsylvania. A couple years later, another fellow from the company gets transferred here as well.

The newbie decides he wants to go camping at Mt. Rainier. So they get one ofe the old steel lined coolers, and fill it chuck full of steaks and corn and potato salad.

Get up to White River campground on the east side of Rainier and starts to cook. My friend keeps warning the dude that he was not in downtown Philly anymore and to make damn sure he cleans up and hides the cooler when he's done.

Middle of the night, my friend hears a huge ruckus, people screaming and growls, then hears the dudes car start up and peel out.

In the morning, they found the remains of the guys tent, and the steel lined cooler, which had been ripped open like it was cellophane or something. One bear was still hanging around sniffing, they chased him off.

I have a healthy respect for bears, but in fact they are usually not dangerous. EXCEPT!!!

Don't leave food around, don't doll yourself up with fragrance de jour, and women on their periods should avoid the wilderness.

"Ein Prosit" = Cheers
Berliner Baer = National Symbol with Berlin as Capital.
The Lion is the symbol of many states, but the Baer is the symbol of Berlin. Heraldry and all that...
(Don't want to get into the lost tribes stuff and the lion heraldry of Judah...)

GOD'S OWN DRUNK
By: Lord Buckley
Song By:Jimmy Buffett
Well, like to explain to you all before,
I ain't no drinkin' man
I tried it once and it got me highly irregular
And I swore I'd never do it again
I promised my brother in-law that I'd go up watch his still
While he went in to town to vote
It was right up on the mountain
where the map said it would be
Friends let me tell you one thing,
tho it wasn't no ordinary still
It stood up on that mountainside
like a hugh golden opal
God's yeller moon shinin' on the cool clear evenin'
God's little lanterns twinklin' on and off in the heavens
Like I explain'd to you once before I ain't no drinkin' man
But temptation got the best of me
And I took a slash
That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat
like honey dew vine water
And I took another slash,
Took another'n an another'n an another'n
For you knew I'd downed one whole jug of that shit
and commenced to gettin' hot flashes
Goose pimples was runnin' up and down my body
And a feelin' came over me
like somethin' I'd never experienced before
It was like, like I was in love
In love for the first time, with anything that moved
Animate, inanimate it didn't matter
It's like there's a great neon sign flashin' on an' off
in my brain sayin' "Jimmy Buffett there's a great day a comin'"
`Cause I was drunk
I wasn't knee crawlin', slip slidin', Reggie Youngin'
Commode huggin' drunk
I was God's own drunk and a fearless man
And that's when I first saw the bear
He was a Kodiak lookin' fella `bout nineteen feet tall
He rambled up over the hill
expectin' me to do one of two things,
Flip or fly, I didn't do either one
It hung him up
He started sniffin' around my body tryin' to smell fear
But he ain't gonna smell no fear `cause
I'm God's own drunk and a fearless man
It hung him up
He looked right in my eyes, and my eyes
was a lot redder than his was
It hung him up
So I approached him, I said "Mr. Bear, I love
every hair on your twenty-seven acre body
I know you got a lot of friends over there
on the other side of the hill
There's ole' rare bear, tall bear, Freddy bear, Kelly bear
Really bear, smelly the bear, smokey the bear,
pokey the bear
I want you to go back over there tonight
And tell them I'm feelin' right
You tell them I love each and everyone of them
like a brother and a sister
But if they give me any trouble tonight
I'm gonna run every God damn one of them off the hill"
He took two steps backwards and didn't know what to think
Neither did I but bein' charitable and cautious
Well hell I approached him again
I said "Mr. Bear, You know in the eyes of the Lord
we're both beasts when it comes right down to it
So I want you to be my buddy, Buddy bear"
So I took ole' buddy bear by his island size paw
and I led him over to the still
He's a sniffin' around that thing cause
he's smellin' somethin' good
I gave him one of them jugs of honey dew vine water
He downed it up right
Looked like one of them damn bears in the circus
Sippin' sasparilly in the moonlight
I gave him another'n an another'n an another'n
For I knew it he downed eight of them
and commenced to doin' the bear dance
Two snips, a snort, a fly turn, and a grunt
It was so simple like the jitter bug
It plum evaded me
We worked ourselves into a tumultuous uproar
And I was awful tired and went over to the hillside
and I laid down and went to sleep
Slept for four hours and dreampt me some tremulous dreams
When I woke up, there was God's yeller moon
shinin' on the clear cool evenin'
God's little lanterns twinklin' on and off
in the heavens
My buddy the bear was a missin'
Want to know something else friends and neighbors
So was that still
