Bear cub takes casual stroll through Oregon drug store

Thursday, October 23, 2014, 11:46 AM - Some shoppers at an Oregon drug store got a surprise when they saw a bear cub scurrying down the aisles.

Witnesses say the cub first showed up Sunday at a nearby hotel, hopped out a window and crossed the street to the Rite Aid in Ashland, a city just north of the California border. 

KGW reports that customers took photos and video until police arrived and scooped the little bear into a shopping basket. 

Footage shows an officer approaching the cub, and it dashing the other direction. 

There was no sign of its mother. 

Oregon wildlife officials say the cub, who is only 13 pounds, will need to be taken to a rehab centre and cared for before being released back into the wild.
