Tisha Campbell Recalls Crazy Encounter with a Bear Inside Grocery Store

Tisha first shared a video of the incident on her Instagram before talking about it in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.

“He was in the bread section. I’m all the way in the fruit section. My instinct was, ‘OK, I have to figure out how I’m gonna get out of here,’ because they were just shooing him outside. How am I gonna get to my car?” Tisha recalled. “So the calm that you see on my IG is really panic, straight panic. But I have to always think two steps ahead. Thank god my mother taught me how to play chess…When I got into my car I got to let it out.”

In her Instagram video, Tisha shared a video of the bear walking around the store as she quickly headed out before making it safely to her car.

“I paid for my groceries, but that was part of the panic because I was trying to wait for the bear to go farther. So I was panicked. I just kept paying for my groceries,” Tisha said with a laugh in her interview.

“Oh that’s so dumb, I should’ve just dropped the cart and just ran out while he was distracted,” she continued. “But I just got nervous because that looked like a baby bear to me, it didn’t look like a full-grown bear. So where there’s a baby there’s a mama…My dumb behind bought, that’s why I was out of breath because I was throwing my groceries in the back and rushed into the front.”

Tisha then went on to say that it was a very bizarre setting for a bear to be in.

“I’ve never seen a bear in this area. It’s a very urban area. There’s a lot of people, a lot of houses,” Tisha added.

The bear eventually made it out of the grocery store and hid under a trailer in the parking lot until wildlife officials were able to tranquilize it and bring it to the Angeles National Forest.

We’re glad Tisha made it out ok!
