Black Bear Visits South Lake Tahoe Hospital

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (AP) - Patients and doctors at a hospital at Lake Tahoe had a bit of a scare last week when a bear paid a visit.

The California black bear strolled through the first set of automatic sliding glass doors at Barton Memorial Hospital's main entrance.

The hospital's surveillance cameras caught the bear on film. Once the animal came upon the second set of automatic doors it became spooked and headed the other direction.

Ironically, at the front of the hospital stands a 6-foot-tall fiberglass "Dr. Bear" sculpture.
