Bear Takes in Dinner and a Show in Nev
INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. (AP) -- A bear with better taste than his, or her cousins, dined last week on salmon, tri-tip and cherry ice cream - all in the deserted food court at the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival at Sand Harbor.
The choices of surf and turf - and the bard - were more discriminating than the bear that settled last month for cold pizza and an even colder beer it found in a convertible near the south shore casino area.
The foray also was more successful than the bear that wandered into a delivery area last week at MontBleu Casino Resort & Spa on the south shore, but left empty-pawed.
Nevada Department of Wildlife biologist Carl Lackey was called to the scene and left one of his bear traps, but wasn't real optimistic.
"I put old doughnuts in the trap and he just seems to walk by it and head for the refrigerators in the food court," Lackey said. "I mean, why eat day-old doughnuts when you can get salmon?"

"He ate the cherry and never touched the vanilla."
Too funny, what a fussy eater lol
You guys in the states have the most amusing bear stories.
That one not so long again [in up to the minute] made me laugh too and when JBean said...'lucky he didn't have the keys' I pissed myself laughing...

I know bears can be dangerous, but this is such a cute story.
It's so beautiful up at Tahoe, my brother lived in Incline, Tahoma & South Beach so I got to see a lot of the lake although I never encountered a bear!
