Bear Breaks into House, Kool-Aid Man Crashes Through Wall

August 13th, 2019

A bear made its way into a home in Estes Park on Friday, then was spooked while in the house. Police said that the bear “forcibly breached a hole in the wall like the ‘Kool-Aid Man’ and made [its] escape.” This is not the first bear break-in in Estes this year, with 35 bears breaking into vehicles. Wildlife officials say that there was not food in the vehicles, but the bears are used to there being food in cars, so they check just in case. It is likely that the bear burglar in question broke into the house in the search of food as well. The police said in a statement on... Read More

By: Óscar Contreras BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. – A “delinquent bear” had a bit of fun in Boulder County this 4th of July, and it didn’t involve fireworks. The Boulder County Sheriff’s Office said a bear pulled open an unlocked driver’s doors and climbed in. Unfortunately for the bear – not to mention the owner of the car – the door closed behind the animal. The bear then worked on digging through all four doors, “but apparently butt-shifted the car into neutral.” The car then rolled back and off the driveway about 100 feet down the hill, and the bear ended... Read More

Bear Runs Through Marathon in Leadville

June 28th, 2019

  Runners at Leadville Trail Marathon in Colorado were met with a stunning surprise as a bear crossed their paths about midway through the race. The bear ran straight through the middle of the path that the runners were on, causing everyone to stop what they were doing to watch it meander through. Stephen Peterson of Colorado Springs told Runners World, “We let the bear do what it was going to do, and it found a gap in the runners to cross and then took off into the brush. Everyone just looked at each other like, ‘Did that really just happen?’ It was so casual. That was what was funny... Read More

May 9th, 2017

Walnut Brewery’s Old Elk Brown Ale tastes like victory. Perhaps it’s because the English-style brown ale wins medals as often as the US Olympic gymnastics team; the beer is a two-time Silver and Gold medalist at the Great American Beer Festival awards. The brew is rich and malty, with notes of caramel and chocolate and subtle hops. The beer is as delicious as it is interesting and needs to be on ever beer snob’s bucket list. Of course, the brewery offers lots of delectable brews worth tasting. Some of my favorites? 1123 IPA  I love a good, strong IPA. This hoppy brew is tropical... Read More
