Discreet bear indulges sweet tooth
A BEAR in a lolly shop is nothing like a bull in a china shop – at least not this one.
A black bear in the United States went in and out of a sweets store in the Colorado resort town of Estes Park multiple times early one morning last month, but he used the front door and didn’t break a thing.
He did, however, steal some treats.
Surveillance video at the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory shows the bear opening the door, grabbing some sweets, taking them outside and eating them, then returning for more.
He made seven trips in about 15 minutes, finally leaving after a passing car apparently scared him away.
Store owner Jo Adams says the bear managed to pop open the door because the deadbolt wasn’t completely secured.
But she says the only evidence her careful visitor left behind was some dirt on a counter and some paper on the ground.
