Employees at a Colorado pizza restaurant were surprised to discover an unexpected customer in the store’s back room Monday afternoon.

But after the kind of day she had, you can’t really blame her for wanting some comfort food.

Experts at Colorado Parks and Wildlife believe the bear had been orphaned or abandoned by its mother. In addition, the cub had a broken paw, which authorities believe may have been caused by an automobile accident.

After being sighted several times Monday morning in Colorado Springs, Colorado, the cub eventually made its way through the propped-open door of Louie’s Pizza, where it caused quite a commotion amongst staff and customers.

“We asked [employees] what was up and they said there was a bear in there and it was eating all the icing,” customer Andy Shinholt told KOAA News in Colorado. “He was soft and he had icing all over him. He was eating all the icing.”

According to employees, after helping herself to all the icing she could handle, the cub did what many of us do after a big meal: she took a nap.

The staff at Louie’s Pizza called police and wildlife officers, who tranquilized the bear so it could be safely removed from the restaurant.

In addition to its injured paw, the bear was found to be underweight, an even more significant problem this time of year as bears try to fatten up in advance of hibernation season.

Wildlife officers say the cub will be sent to a rehabilitation facility to treat its injured paw and help stabilize its weight before being released back into the wild.

As for the icing, well, let’s just say the staff at Louie’s is likely more than happy to have the bear owe them one.
