A Kentucky couple has chosen the infamous Cocaine Bear to officiate their wedding ceremony.
The 175-pound black bear, which died from a cocaine overdose in 1985, is currently housed in a museum in Lexington.
The wedding will take place at the Kentucky for Kentucky Fun Mall on Monday, and the couple has invited anyone and everyone to bear witness.
The Cocaine Bear was stuffed by a taxidermist and has changed hands over the years, going from Georgia to Tennessee to Nevada before ending up in the Kentucky museum.
The museum’s co-founder has stated that as long as the person marrying the couple has the authority, the marriage can be binding in Kentucky.
