BEAR SCARE at Betty Ehart Senior Center

As senior center staff prepare to re-open, a trial run was conducted Wednesday, as staff members were made aware that an un-masked bear, had entered the facility. As staff were serving lunch in the drive thru, the bear made a beeline for the door, as officers approached him. All staff members were alerted, mostly by instructions screamed throughout the facility for them to close their doors. The bear made it safely outside, with the help of two noble LAPD officers. The intruder, had not been temperature checked or signed the new rules, upon entry. Rumor has it that he was a senior bear and met the age requirements . Our grateful thanks to the Los Alamos Police Department and Animal Control.
