JUNEAU, Alaska, Sept. 25 (UPI) -- A bartender at a hotel bar in Juneau, Alaska, said she shooed away a black bear that walked into the watering hole by shouting at it to leave.

C. Scott Fry, manager of the Alaskan Hotel & Bar in Juneau, said the bear walked past the hotel lobby entrance about 9:15 p.m. Monday and wandered into the entrance to the bar, KTOO-TV, Juneau, reported Wednesday.

"And as soon as he got to the bar door, it made a left and walked in like he wanted to have a beer," Fry said.

Ariel Svetlik-McCarthy, who was tending bar at the time, said she shouted at the bruin as soon as it walked through the door.

"No bear! Get out! No! You can't be in here!" she shouted at the animal.

The bear left within a few seconds, Svetlik-McCarthy said. She joked the bear looked underage.

Ryan Scott with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game said it is unusual for a bear to wander into a building.

"Sounds to me like they did great, and it's good news the bear did oblige," Scott said.
