Bear obeys bartender's command, leaves Juneau bar
'No bear! Get out!' Ariel Svetlik-McCarthy yelled.
JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — If only all unwelcome bar guests were this obliging.
A black bear walked into the bar at the Alaskan Hotel in downtown Juneau on Monday night.
Bartender Ariel Svetlik-McCarthy says she freaked out and yelled, "No bear! Get out! No! You can't be in here!"
The bear complied, leaving the bar within seconds.
State biologist Ryan Scott says it's rare for black bears to go inside Juneau businesses, but they have wandered inside homes before.
He tells KTOO the staff did a great job, and it was good news the bear left.
State wildlife officials have killed two nuisance bears in Juneau this summer.

Keep over building and more bears will venture into homes bars and private lands searching for FOOD!
There is no need to over build new residences when so many are in need of repair or of a buyer!
Over-building is complicating and destroying much of our environment and natural resources while taking food and space away from its inhabitants.!
