An Alaska police officer used his Taser to discourage a small black bear that had gotten into someone's fish fryer.
Lt. Dave Parker delivered a 30-second burst of 100,000 volts to scare away the bear from a house. Parker told the Anchorage Daily News the bear flipped on its back, flailing its feet in the air, growling and crying until it rolled off the porch.
Parker says it shook its head and then quickly bolted away. Parker hopes the stun gun tactic will keep the bear out of further mischief.
