800 Pound Bear Stolen
A bar patio is a little bit lighter, after its resident of 10 years has been pushed off. John El-Ayazra is the owner of Eagles Nest Bar in Uniontown, Pennsylvania. 10 years ago he received an 8 foot, 800 pound bear from a friend who shot it in Russia, it was mounted in Alaska, and has lived on the patio of the bar ever since. Until recently, some men pushed the mounted bear off the patio early Sunday morning. The cook at the bar saw the men and started yelling at them, and the would be thieves drove off in their pick up truck. Responding police could not push the bear back up the stairs so left it under the stairs. The bear was taken sometime during the early morning hours, probably by the men who pushed it over the patio rails.
Police say damage was done to the bear, and to the stairs where the bear landed. El-Ayazra does not believe this is just a prank, if it was, the bear would've been returned by now. He stated the bear is worth at least $10,000 dollars. They are investigating the culprits, as one of them used his credit card to buy drinks. From Wpxi.com.
