A bear cub wandered into a grocery store in Ketchikan, Alaska, on Saturday, and climbed up on the fruits and vegetables in the produce case.
KRBD Radio in Ketchikan reported that police were called as the cub wandered back and forth in the case at Tatsuda's IGA; officers responded, and assisted as a customer got a hold of the cub and carried it outside, as seen in the video below.
Store employees reported that the cub entered the store through automatic doors.
The cub was undersized for this time of year, KRBD reported. No mother bear was seen in the area, and the Anchorage Daily News reported that as of Monday it had not been seen since being released two days before.
KRBD reported that the store threw away all the vegetables in the produce case after the incident.
