Bear Barges Into Springs Pizza Joint, Takes A Nap

September 14, 2015

A bear that wandered into a pizza shop in Colorado Springs was hauled out of the store before she could get her pie.

Colorado Springs Police Department spokeswoman Catherine Buckley says a school resource officer at Palmer High School was told there was a bear near the school on Monday, and went to check it out.

While looking for the bear, the officer was flagged down by employees at Louie's Pizza about a bear in their store nearby.

The bear fell asleep in the back of the store on a rack of boxes and was tranquilized before she could get a pizza.

Customers had to wait in line until the bear could be removed.
