Unable to resist the temptation.
A mama bear and her cub were caught on camera treating themselves to Krispy Kreme doughnuts during a delivery to a military base in Anchorage, Alaska.
KTUU reports the animals broke into a van at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson after the driver left the door open while stopped outside an Express store.
” You could hear them opening packages,” said store manager Shelly Dino. “They ate all the donuts.”
” I think they ate twenty packages of donuts with holes in them and six packages of chocolate donuts in three packages,” she added.
“As a result, I said: “He’s in the van!” and that’s when the little cub followed them, entered the van, and started eating the donuts,” she said, adding that she called base security personnel who turned on sirens to ward off the bears.
Candice Sergeant, general manager of local Krispy Kreme, said she was shocked when she heard about the brazen bear robbers.
” There is no way bears are in the back of a van. You think donuts and bears, and then I thought, ‘Okay, how do we solve this problem?” – she told the TV station.
According to the Sergeant, her team learned a lesson from the incident.
“We’re going to learn how to raise the ramp, close the doors so bears don’t get in there again,” she said with a laugh in an interview with KTUU.
