This story was published on CNN as part of a much larger article on "weird news". It seems that trumpet players aren't the only people partial to certain refreshments! Quote: Bear guzzles 36 beers, passes out at campground (August 18) Campground workers at the Baker Lake Resort on Washington State's Puget Sound were surprised to find a black bear passed out and surrounded by three dozen beer cans. The animal had swiped the suds from campers' coolers and seemed to take a liking to the local brew, Rainier Beer. The bear was chased away only to return the next day, presumably looking for more beer. Wildlife agents captured the bear using honey, doughnuts and beer for bait. Unquote. No doubt the bear was looking for some of "the hair of the dog that bit him"!
