Did ‘Cocaine Bear’ Actually Happen?

February 23, 2023

The horror-comedy film "Cocaine Bear" sounds outlandish but it's actually inspired by a true event. In 1985, a former cop turned drug runner was piloting a plane carrying $15 million worth of cocaine. When his plane crashed, a black bear in a Georgia forest found the massive amount of cocaine and gobbled it all down. In real life, the 175-pound black bear overdosed and died. Now, he is a popular attraction at a mall in Lexington, Kentucky.
