On Tuesday morning Snowmass, Colorado skaters found a heavy local dominating the bowls in their skatepark. It was a bear, according to a story on 9news.com. The animal kind.
"Authorities say it looks as if the bear had been in the park all night when they found it Tuesday morning. . . The solution to get the bear out was to give it a way to climb out. . . So, authorities with the Snowmass Parks and Rec Department put a long ladder down into the skateboard bowl and the bear eventually climbed up and got out."
