EAU CLAIRE, WI (WTAQ) - A bear with an apparent appetite hung around the Olive Garden restaurant in Eau Claire late Monday.

WQOW-TV had a photo of the animal on its Web site.

An employee saw the bear show up around 4:45 p.m. It hung around the parking lot for about ten minutes until a car almost hit the animal while crossing a street.

After that, the bear ran off.

Restaurant employees called police -- but there was no immediate word on whether authorities could find the bear.
