A young black bear made quite an appearance when it wandered into a Rio Rancho, New Mexico medical clinic Friday morning.

The animal strolled into the clinic through an automatic door early this morning when only a few people were present. Police and animal control officers were called. They evacuated the lab through another door before cornering the bear in a bathroom.

It was tranquilized, tagged and later released in the Manzano Mountains.

In the words of one officer, "Visiting hours are over for that bear.''
