THE BEAR is back!
Rupert the bear has returned to Orlando's Restaurant after a break away.
He was found up a lighting pole doing a trapeze act with a bottle of pop in his hand outside the Grange Moor restaurant.
Rupert the bear has been on a trip to Spain, Blackpool and Scarborough, with restaurant owner Orlando Gubbini receiving a postcad from him each time.
Orlando, who is also a magician, said: “I don’t know who keeps doing it.
“It must be one of my customers having a joke and it keeps all the children amused to see what has happened to him.”
But Orlando and wife Carolina were stunned when they noticed him up a 30ft pole.
“The postcards all have different handwriting,” Orlando added.
“I think it is good fun and all the customers always say ‘where is he now’.
“It’s a guessing game each time and it’s part of the gimmick now to guess where he has been.”
The bear’s high perch was in the restaurant car park in Wakefield Road.
