Bear Busts Into Pizza Joint For An Icing Supper

This week, a hungry little bear cub snuck into a Colorado Springs pizza parlor, climbing shelves and eating icing and oil before finally taking a nap, NBC News reports.

That's it, the fuzz is here. 

Louie’s Pizza owner Louie Sciarotta said a “horde” of high school students had just left his restaurant when the bear was discovered in a back room Monday afternoon. From the Colorado Springs Gazette:
The animal entered through an open door, walked past the restrooms and found its way into the pizzeria’s prep room. There he ate some icing used in Louie’s cini-bread and curled up on the second shelf of a storage rack. 
One of the employees, Sawyer Janney, said he was startled when all the commotion began, not by the bear but by a co-worker. 
“He just yells ‘bear’ and runs outside,” Janney said.

“We asked what was up and they said there was a bear in there and it was eating all the icing,” a patron told KOAA. “He was soft and he had icing all over him. He was eating all the icing.”

By the time wildlife officers arrived, the hungry bear had become a sleepy bear.

This is a picture of a bear that likes to party.

“I walked back there and the bear was asleep right there on top of the icing,” District Wildlife Manager Phillip Gurule told KKTV. “Looks like she had a little bit to eat.”

Officials with Colorado Parks and Wildlife say the underweight bear cub will be taken to a rehabilitation facility for recovery and then released into the wild.
