Two bear cubs that escaped from a South Dakota wildlife park didn't get far, due in part to their curiosity.
The Rapid City Journal reports that a man spotted the cubs lollygagging in his neighbor's yard about a block away from the Bear Country USA park on Sunday evening.
Pennington County Sheriff's Deputy Kylie Kintigh said that when she arrived at the scene, the bears seemed more interested in following her around than making a getaway. They checked out her squad car and one even tried climbing on the hood.

Two aviation officers involved in the infamous United Airlines dragging incident at O'Hare International Airport have been fired from the job, officials revealed Tuesday.
Inspector General Joseph Ferguson announced the news in his quarterly report Tuesday, adding that at least two other officers received a five-day suspension from the Chicago Department of Aviation.
The report did not name the officers, but noted the two who were fired included the officer "who improperly escalated the incident and an Aviation Security Sergeant found to have been involved in the deliberate removal of material facts from an employee report."
On April 9, airport security officers in Chicago dragged 69-year-old David Dao from a crowded United Express plane.
A Missouri appeals court on Tuesday threw out a $72 million award to a woman who claimed talcum powder made by Johnson & Johnson contributed to her ovarian cancer, saying Missouri was not the proper jurisdiction for the lawsuit.
The Missouri Eastern District Court's ruling came in a lawsuit filed by Jacqueline Fox, 62, of Birmingham, Alabama, who claimed the baby powder and other Johnson & Johnson products that she used for about 25 years contributed to her cancer. She died in 2015, about four months before her case went to trial in St. Louis Circuit Court. She was joined by 64 other plaintiffs but only two lived in Missouri.
In February 2016, a jury awarded Fox $10 million in actual damages and $62 million in punitive damages — the first award in the lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson. Four of five cases in Missouri have resulted in a total of $300 million in awards for the plaintiffs, with the other case decided for New Jersey-based Johnson & Johnson.
