COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KXRM) — A bear cub took a lunch break at downtown pizza restaurant in Colorado Springs Monday afternoon.
Police said the cub was spotted near Palmer High School before heading to Louie’s Pizza on Tejon Street for lunch.
With the help of police, Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials removed the bear from the restaurant.
According to a local newspaper, an employee said the bear walked in an open door and into the restaurant’s prep room. It ate some icing used for cinnamon bread and then took a nap on a shelf.
A worker told the paper he found out what was happening when a fellow employee yelled “bear!” and ran outside.
Wildlife officers say the bear appeared to be malnourished and slightly injured. They took it to a rehab facility.
