Black bear cub tours Ketchikan lodge

KETCHIKAN -- A small black bear cub checked out the sites at a Ketchikan lodge this week.

KRBD reports the bear walked into Cape Fox Lodge just after 11 a.m. Wednesday, went into the coffee shop, wandered the lobby and visited the women's restroom. Employees ushered it out the back door after about 10 minutes.

Dave Hayes with the lodge says that at first, people thought it was just a big dog. Once they realized it was a bear, tourists began snapping photos of it in the lobby.

Hayes says the bear wasn't aggressive, and it didn't even growl.

He says you'd think it was just a big pet
