Cocaine Bear: True story of infamous bear who consumed duffel bag of cocaine to get Hollywood treatment

When Georgia investigators stumbled across the infamous Cocaine Bear in 1985 its cause of death was unmistakable.

The 175 pound black bear was found next to a duffel bag that had once been filled with more than 70 pounds of cocaine before it was hurled from a drug smugglerís plane.

Except now it was ripped open with 40 empty packets scattered near the overdosed animalís carcass.

Now the wild story of the Cocaine Bear is set to be given the Hollywood treatment and turned into a movie directed by actress and director Elizabeth Banks.

2. I read that first sentence to imply "in order to get Hollywood treatment" ...

I was confused as to how they knew the bear's motive was to get into celebrity rehab.
