I never knew there was a bear that overdosed on 88/lbs of cocaine?!
Why didn't the OT tell me this story?

So it is with Kentucky's legendary "Cocaine Bear", affectionately known as Pablo EskoBear.

He's the 175-pound black bear that died after consuming 40 kilos of pure cocaine and became the state's most unlikely tourist attraction.

quote:

When police traced his route back through the forest, they expected to find a cache of drugs worth $15 million (£11 million).

Instead, they found 40 open containers and one very dead black bear .

The as-yet-unnamed black bear had suffered possibly the worst overdose in drugs history.

"Its stomach was literally packed to the brim with cocaine. There isn't a mammal on the planet that could survive that. Cerebral hemorrhaging, respiratory failure, hyperthermia, renal failure, heart failure, stroke. You name it, that bear had it."

"You wouldn't think that a Cocaine Bear would be for all ages, but kids love it," said Griffin. "Everybody wants their picture with Cocaine Bear." The Fun Mall has a liberal policy with shutterbugs, who are encouraged to come into the store (a former parachute factory) and take as many photos with the bear in as many ridiculous poses as they want.

How is it that an adolescent bear could eat exactly half of his body weight in anything, let alone cocaine? Little guy probably had a bite of one of the packages, and the dude that found him decided he had a convenient way of explaining how the other 39 kilos disappeared.
