The new movie "Cocaine Bear" is based on a true story . . . but VERY LOOSELY based. The reality is that in 1985, a drug kingpin tried to abandon his malfunctioning plane with 75 pounds worth of cocaine strapped to his body.
His parachute failed and he went splat in the Chattahoochee National Forest in Georgia. A bear came along and ATE a bunch of that coke, then overdosed and died.
Well, you can still see the REAL "Pablo Escobear", because they STUFFED him and put him on display at the park. But he was STOLEN, then changed hands a few times. One of his owners was country star Waylon Jennings. Now he's at the Kentucky for Kentucky Fun Mall in Lexington.
