  • The bear is actually a pretty good dancer.

In Hollywood, everybody wants to be a star -- but some people just want to be a Dodgers mascot.

During Game 3 of the National League Championship Series last night, a Dodgers fan put on a bear costume with a Dodgers jersey and danced atop the Cardinals dugout. One would think that was just the team's mascot entertaining the fans, but the Dodgers don't even have a mascot.

The man in the bear costume was not paid a Dodgers employee -- he was just a fan with a shabby ursine outfit who decided to really get into the game.

But Dodger stadium security couldn't, ahem, bear it, so they yanked the wannabe mascot down and escorted him to an undisclosed den location.

Here's a video of the incident:

There is no word on whether the Dodgers will enact a ban on bear costumes in the stadium.
