A black bear stopped by the Alaskan Hotel & Bar on Monday night, but was quickly bounced by the bartender on duty.
Manager Scott Fry was at the hotel’s front desk when he saw the bear pass by outside at about 9:15 p.m. He hurried over to the bar to check it out.
“Everyone was heading toward the door,” he said. The bear “was just kind of sauntering away on his merry way.”
Apparently, the bear had passed by the hotel door, turned into the bar and “poked his head five or six feet into the entry door,” Fry said.
