Bear cub strolls through Ashland drug store

Some shoppers at an Ashland drug store were surprised by a bear cub walking down the aisles.

Witnesses say the cub first showed up Sunday at a nearby hotel, hopped out a window and crossed the street to the Rite Aid.

KGW reports it appeared to be only about a month old.

Customers took photos and video until police arrived and scooped the little bear into a shopping cart.

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is holding the cub until it can be moved to a rehab center or a zoo.

There was no sign of its mother. Authorities say the cub cannot be placed back in the wild because of its contact with humans.
