Chili and bear...uh, beer

My friend Robyn Williams, who lives in Boise, Idaho, had to cut short her family camping trip last weekend. Here's why:

"We came home early from our camping trip this wkend because a bear ate all our food early Saturday AM (3# burger, 1# bacon, 8 eggs, 1# butter, a package of hotdogs, all the cheese, half-dozen candy bars, a large container of chili, a gallon of milk, a 12-pack of beer and a 12-pack of pepsi). Then came back two hours later for the bottle of ketchup he'd left behind. It was hysterical--there were the most precise tooth holes in the beer/pop cans, 2 exactly on opposite sides of the cans. Big old fart (4' at the shoulder) knew exactly what he was doing."

No wonder he didn't go for the humans. Who could resist chili and beer? The question is, did he have the milk aftewards to settle his heartburn, or first, as a preventative measure?
