Animals, Doing What Comes Naturally

So, a bear walks into a bar, and...

    No, this is not a joke. A bear really did stroll into a Colorado bar! The customers up front must have been having a lot of fun, because no one saw him, except for a bystander who raced in and filmed the bear wandering around. He soon strolled out again.  (Maybe he wasn't thirsty.)

There's always something going on in Estes Park, home of Rocky Mountain National Park. Including bar-hopping bears.
    A few nights ago, a friend casually mentioned he'd seen a bear in their neighborhood -- in fact, he (the bear) had tipped over their garbage can. But did we see it? Or the other time bears decided to wander casually down the middle of our street?

      Nooo...we were out of town. On vacation.

Update: Thursday night, our next-door neighbors had their hummingbird feeders literally snapped right off the pole in their front yard. Usually that means Mr. Bear is around, but no visual sign of him yet.

And this video, of a cat who sees its owner after 6 months:

Though I suspect it was a setup -- the cat showed wayyy too much emotion.
