ASHLAND, Ore. -- Stuffed teddy bears on drug store shelves may be a common thing.

But shoppers were in for a surprise over the weekend when they saw a real bear cub scurrying down the aisles.

Witnesses say the 1-month-old cub first showed up Sunday at a hotel, hopped out a window and crossed the street to the Rite Aid in Ashland, Oregon.

Customers snapped photos and video taped the little bear until police arrived and scooped the youngster into a shopping cart.

Wildlife officials say the bear is only about 13 pounds, which is a little low for her age.

Oregon wildlife officials are holding the cub until it can be moved to a rehab center or a zoo.

She will be released in to the wild next year, they said.
