In case you’re wondering, a bear cub ambles through the aisles of a drugstore the same way a toddler does.

It runs, stops, walks, and most likely is on the hunt for sweets. At least that’s what one bear caught on camera at a Rite Aid in Ashland, Oregon, was doing.

The bear’s day started with a trip to a Super 8 motel, according to a KOBI-TV report. The one-month-old apparently meandered around the hallways until it was able to get into a room. From there, it escaped out a window and ran across the street to Rite Aid.

That’s where the law caught up with the furry intruder. Ashland police trapped the cub in a shopping cart until wildlife rangers got to the scene.

While no bears were harmed in the making of this video, wildlife officials ruled that the cub’s close encounter with people jeopardizes its future in the wild.

Its next destination: a rehab center or a zoo.
