ASHLAND, Ore. -- A little bear cub surprised shoppers when he somehow got inside a Rite Aid store in Ashland last weekend.
The cub, estimated to be only about a month old, was first spotted at a nearby hotel. Witnesses said nothing there held his interest, so he hopped out a window, crossed the street and wandered inside the store.
Customers captured video on their phones and snapped pictures until police arrived and scooped the little adventurer into a shopping basket.
The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife took over care of the cub until he can be moved to a rehab center or a zoo. Authorities said he cannot be placed back in the wild, because of his contact with humans.
There were no reported sightings of the cub's mother.
