Check out the video. The poor bear looks through the windows like a homeless waif at a toy store.
A startled bear — perhaps hungry for a plasma TV — broke into a Circuit City store in Colorado Springs this morning.
"It's been pretty jumping this morning," said Circuit City supervisor Dawn Greene, who was inside the store during the 7:13 a.m. bear break-in.
The ursine intruder shattered a glass sliding door to enter a customer pickup area and cracked a second glass door, before fleeing into a nearby residential neighborhood and disappearing.
The search for an African lion on the plains east of Colorado Springs was called off Monday afternoon after reported sightings in the morning caused quite a stir among residents.
But the mystery remains: What is out there?
If you look at the picture, it's clearly a big dog. Mystery solved!
A veteran worker at the Denver Zoo suffered a hand puncture wound Monday when a hippopotamus chomped down during routine dental training.
The keeper was bitten about 9:45 a.m. in the outdoor hippo exhibit as she and colleagues were doing desensitizing training on Mahali, a 5-year-old male, to make dental work more comfortable for the hippo.
Interesting fact or figure:
Bite: Few measurements have been made of the precise strength of a hippo's bite, but they have been known to crush small boats in their jaws. . . .
