The Lasso: Roping in the best of the web

Colorado bar greeted by large black bear

At the entrance of Lonigan's Saloon in Estes Park, Colorado a sign welcoming patrons is held up by a fake black bear.

But apparently the local establishment isn't immune to the real kind, either.

Last Thursday, a black bear slowly made its way through the back door of the bar at around 9:15 p.m.

"I tried to holler bear so people could hear me, but they were oblivious," customer Daniel Lyell told "He kept wandering up to the middle bar where all the patrons were."

Luckily when all was said and done, though, the bear -- estimated at six-feet and 300 pounds -- didn't cause any harm.
