count on the bears being friendly. >> whoops. >> police in canada seizing drugs on a property when they noticed about 10 large black bears just wandering around. they were pretty worried at first but quickly realized the bears were tame. the officers, as you can see, took some pictures with the gatekeepers. the bears apparently well fed, which they say made them rather docile. it's 5:26. until the next half hour, the evidence that shows the moon may be shrinking. >> some of the oil from the blown out well in the gulf is still out there. where scientist say the oil is lurking. the furloughs will continue until a budget is passed. that's what the governor said. how close are we to that happening? it's not good. we'll tell you about that coming up.
