The cocaine bear in the middle was the least weird part of that story.

Weird.

A big black bear walked into Bill's Bar in Butte, Montana. The bear came up to the bar and called over the bartender. The bartender says, "what can I get for you?" The bear says, "this bear is mighty thirsty, give this bear a beer." The bartender says "I'm sorry, there's a law on the books that says we can't serve a big black bear a beer in a bar in Butte". The bear responds, " this bear is really thirsty, you better give him a beer". The bartender repeats, "I'm sorry, but there's a law on the books that says we can't serve a big black bear a beer in a bar in Butte". The bear, a bit blustered, says "you better give this big black bear a beer or he's going to eat one of your customers". The bartender, again, says "I'm sorry, there's a law on the books that says we can't serve a big black bear a beer in a bar in Butte". The bear then saunters over to this beautiful woman sitting at the end of the bar and eats her alive. He walks back over to the bartender and says "now, are you gonna give this big black bear a beer or is he gonna have to eat another customer?" The bartender responds, "I'm sorry, there's a law on the books that says we cannot serve a big black bear a beer in a bar in Butte and furthermore, we can't serve anyone under the influence of narcotics." The bear exclaims "narcotics! I've never done drugs in my life!" The bartender looks at the bear and says "that was a bar biatch you ate".

If someone drops dead with 14mill of coke on him, I am not calling the police.

It would probably take me a while to figure out how to sell it, but, whatever.

So...The plan was to jump out of the plane with some of it, set the plane on autopilot and allow the rest just to crash somewhere?

I don't get it.

There's a whole book on this called "Bluegrass Conspiracy." It's crazier than you can imagine. If someone was to pitch the story as fiction/movie script, they'd get laughed out of the office. But it's wild and true.

Likely what happened was the plane was picked up on radar and the cops sent interdiction units after it. The pilot sets the plane on autopilot and jumps. Better to lose the coke and try again, rather than getting caught and get 20 years in the federal pen.

It's a fake your own death thing.  Plane crashes way out in the middle of nowhere, where's the pilot hmm but maybe animals got him or maybe he bailed and didn't make it (which amusingly actually happened.)  Handy for getting those pesky investigators and creditors off the trail - if you can pull it off.  Which almost no one does.  Dude had read too many beach novels or something

So the article was unclear, how much cocaine is safe for a bear to eat?

Asking for a friend.

The CIA was flying coke through Mena, AR, so it wouldn't surprise me at all.

Story is a bit odd. Sounds like the bear had the coke not the body. Regardless, you'd be better off hiding some of the coke and then calling the cops. That is, if you were insane enough to keep any of it given the circumstances.

The coke the bear got was dropped, then he jumped afterward with what he could carry on him, intending to retrieve it or let the intended recipient know presumably.  But that's only something from previous articles I've seen on it - and it's speculation as it's not like they can ask dude or the intended recipients.  This article was thin on the details.
