A bear walks into a liquor store.
It sounds like the start of a joke, but it was no laughing matter for shocked workers in Connecticut.
Surveillance video from Crazy Bruce’s Liquors on Rt. 6, shows the bear strolling down the shopping plaza sidewalk before eventually deciding to enter the store.
It’s five o’clock somewhere, right?
They also said their bear visitor didn’t cause any damage or hurt anyone.
“We, fortunately, had two employees that acted quickly and locked both the door entrances before the bear was able to get into the actual store. The bear was trapped in the foyer and fortunately found its way out the automatic doors.”
The Hartford Courant reports video from inside shows the bear walking around the foyer while an employee locks an inner door. One unassuming customer also walked into the lobby as an employee unlocked the door and ushered him in.
The bear eventually figured out how to leave, and the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection was notified.
No one was hurt during the close encounter.
