A BEAR WITH A SORE HEAD

A black bear has been found passed out at an American holiday resort after downing 36 cans of beer.

The bear apparently got into campers' coolers and used his claws and teeth to puncture the cans.

Not just any cans though - the bear appeared to favour one brand over another.

"He drank the Rainier and wouldn't drink the Busch beer," said Lisa Broxson, from the Mount Baker resort in Washington.

Wildlife officer Bill Heinck said the bear tried one can of Busch and then ignored the rest.

It obviously enjoyed the taste of Rainier though - downing 36 cans.

"This is a new one on me," Heinck said. "I've known them to get into cans, but nothing like this. And it definitely had a preference."

Wildlife officers tried to chase the bear from the camp but the animal climbed a tree to sleep off the alcohol.

A large, humane trap was used the next morning to capture the bear for relocation.

The trap was baited with doughnuts, honey and two open cans of Rainier.

"Climbing a tree to sleep it off" is an interesting concept. I'll have to try that sometime.
