So, a bear walks into a bar ... yes, we realize that's not how the joke goes. This is a true story.

It happened at a pub near Colorado's Rocky Mountain National Park when the grizzly buddy decided what he needed at the end of a long workday was a quick trip to the local watering hole.

"I tried to holler 'bear' so people could hear me. They were oblivious. He kept wandering up to the bar where all the people were," recalled one witness.

The bear left a few minutes later. No one was hurt. We're betting that all the folks in that bar will be telling that story for years to come.
