The bear apparently got into campers’ coolers and used his claws and teeth to puncture the cans. And not just any cans.
“He drank the Rainier and wouldn’t drink the Busch beer,” said Lisa Broxson, bookkeeper at the campground and cabins resort east of Mount Baker.
Fish and Wildlife enforcement Sgt. Bill Heinck said the bear did try one can of Busch, but ignored the rest. The beast then consumed about 36 cans of Rainier.For those of you who don't know Rainier is the Pabst of the Northwest. Apparently bears don't drink Bush. Feel free to add your Bush beer jokes to the comments.
My guess is that the bear was somehow able to tell that the Rainier had a higher caloric content than the Bush. Bears normally eat the highest calorie food available to them first. I bet he would have finished off the Bush latter.
