How's this for a bear hug? There's a story behind this — we promise.
"My wife called just to say 'good night,' and she goes, 'Hey, there's a bear running around in your district,' and I said, 'OK,' and she said, 'Go find it,'" officer Dan Swanson said.
Officer Dan Swanson found the bear wandering around Monroe Street in Denver, and authorities later tranquilized it. But at least officer Swanson wasn't in a grizzly mood. He offered his help.
