Keeping the kids off the furniture in Seward, Alaska.

On Sunday afternoon, just before 3pm, an adolescent black bear walked into the Breeze Inn, located near the Boat Harbor in Seward. The bear entered the lobby through the back door, which was propped open while housekeeping and maintenance was being done on the nearby hotel rooms. The bear then walked down the long hallway, past meeting rooms and entered the main lobby of the hotel, where it wandered around, smelling the stuffed bear that is prominently displayed, according to Carly Coats, who works at the Breeze Inn’s front desk.

Verschueren stated that the bear had been “chased [into the hotel] by people trying to take photographs.” When trying to get the bear to exit the hotel, a similar obstacle made it difficult to get the bear to leave the premises. The front parking lot was full of people eager to take the bear’s photo, many of them standing on their cars. The bear is presumed to be the same one that had been wandering around the Seward Harbor earlier in the day, and had also been spotted at the nearby Chevron Station.

So clearly the bear, like any local celebrity, was simply trying to avoid the paparazzi.

Funny thing though is that this bear apparently attracted far more photographers than now show up to take pictures of a certain former half term governor.

I'm just saying.


  1. I sadly have a sometimes paranoid view of bears having gone to take my garbage out and found one in my vegetable garden twenty feet away, in town. Happily we both freaked each other out and both bolted. I've always felt so bad that we are infringing on their space---which has led to some tragic consequences.

      i live in Wisconsin and have the same problems with raccoons. some get really big and are dangerous. we haven't had a bear for some time. and it is a shame what might happen to such wonderful animals.

  2. How long before someone ties this bear in with Obama and HRC and probably Benghazi?

    I'm so glad the bear got out safely. What an adventure he had and what stories to tell his buddies later as they feast on some berries in the woods!

    Too bad for a certain Wasilla mayor wannabe that he couldn't shoot it to death and then post the photo on instagram.

    I hate to say it but those damned tourist cause problems for animals. Last year they chased an animal into the bay and it drowned. Can't remember what animal. A mountain goat?
    I mean, come on folks! Give the animals breathing space!!!

    So, what is old Sarah up to these days? Did she build a new house? Where?

    the bear is far more interesting, attractive, and and by far, more intelligent than sarah could ever be.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
