COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KXRM) — A bear cub took a lunch break at a pizza restaurant Monday afternoon.

Police said the cub was spotted near Palmer High School before heading to Louie’s Pizza in Colorado Spring for lunch.

The police department there posted photos of the scene on social media.

An employee said the bear walked in an open door and into the restaurant’s prep room. It ate some icing used for cinnamon bread and then took a nap on a shelf, according to a local newspaper. A worker told the paper he found out what was happening when a fellow employee yelled “bear!” and ran outside.

Wildlife officers say the bear appeared to be malnourished and slightly injured. With the help of police, they took the bear to a rehab facility.
