Who is EscoBear?

The story of the bear they call the leader of the Medellín cartel has inspired countless urban legends and conspiracies.

Since it says that he ate more than twenty kilos of cocaine and died of itthe animal has become a symbol of the state, a celebrity that attracts tourists.

One of the most surprising facts of its history is this the cocaine he ingested literally fell from the sky.

In 1985, former narcotics officer and convicted drug dealer Andrew C. Thornton II dropped a bag of cocaine from his plane because he believed it was carrying too much cargo. That day Thornton leapt into the void leaving the vehicle on autopilot and died from a faulty parachute.

On September 11, police discovered Thornton’s body in Knoxville. He was carrying $14 million worth of cocaine strapped to his waist, weapons and wore a bulletproof vest.

Three months later, EscoBear was found dead by a hunter in Georgia’s Chattahoochee National Forest, with 40 open containers of cocaine lying around him. He is said to have ingested around 35 kilograms of this drug.

The bear’s body was kept intact by a taxidermist and was on display for a long time. Today, after having passed through several hands, its whereabouts is unknown.
