500-Pound Bear Breaks Into Gas Station And Eats Snacks

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. You know, most businesses cherish their regulars, but it is different when you're talking about a 500-pound bear who also doesn't pay. CBS13 in Sacramento reports that a gas station in California received multiple visits from a 16-year-old bear who gorged himself on candy and crackers. The wildlife department apprehended the bear and relocated him to a suitable bear habitat. Sounds like he's going to have to get his snack fix elsewhere. It's MORNING EDITION.
