Bear We'd Like to Party With
The bears of New Mexico are apparently hungry and restless in the heat. One wandered into a Raton motel on Monday and a second broke into a Taos Valley Ski motel on Tuesday.
Officials say the first wanderer was lured by the smell of fresh popcorn (hey, we don't blame him) and then proceeded to make himself at home:
"He walked in, went to the pay phones, then straight toward the pool," said desk clerk Kimbra Pacheco.
He's no dummy. He called some friends and then went to work on his tan like any hotel crasher. Unfortunately he ended the day with a tranquilizer dart in his neck, but a nap was probably just what he needed.
