ESTES PARK, Colo. (AP) — An Irish pub not far from Rocky Mountain National Park got an unusually burly visitor last week.

KCNC-TV in Denver reports (http://cbsloc.al/17EpWDR ) a black bear briefly wandered into Lonigan’s pub in downtown Estes Park.

Daniel Lyell, of Estes Park, says he followed the bear inside and took a photo of it while trying to warn customers up front that a bear was walking toward them. He says customers didn’t seem to notice. The bear left a short time later.

The bar’s owner and bartender didn’t see the bear either, but a surveillance camera shows it ambling past empty tables and chairs.

Bar owner David Callahan tells the Estes Park Trail-Gazette this is the second time he knows of that a bear has entered the saloon.
