Oh, so when a mother bear and a cub break into a Krispy Kreme Donut delivery van, it’s a “cute accident,” but when I do it, it’s considered a “Class A misdemeanor.”

I’m, of course, joking that I got arrested for stealing donuts out of a Krispy Kreme truck. I do love their bakery products though (and their coffee is underrated), but apparently not as much as these Alaskan bears love their scrumptious donuts.

A mama bear and her cub were walking along and noticed that the back of a donut delivery truck was slightly ajar, so they decided to check it out. Once they waltzed over to it, they realized that they had hit the mother load, and started to dive right into the variety of donuts in the vehicle.

Once the delivery truck driver came back out and saw the bears rustling through the products in the back, he went back inside and told the store manager about what was unfolding. The bears had apparently been frequenting the area, and were probably ecstatic that they finally got their paws on some fresh baked goods.

Shelly Deano, the manager of the store located on a military base in Anchorage, Alaska, was shocked when she heard that some wild animals were fans of their world famous donuts. She told the local news station in an interview:

“You could hear them breaking open the packages. We were trying to beat on the van but they just kept eating all the doughnuts.

They ate 20 packages of the doughnut holes and I believe six packages of the three-pack chocolate doughnuts.”

The security team at the military base was called in to help handle the mother bear and her cub. Personnel that responded ended up blasting sirens towards the vehicles, which eventually led the bears to wrap up their gluttonous, all-you-can-eat buffet of donuts and stroll back into the woods.

Candice Sargeant, the general manager of the Krispy Kreme located on the military base, told the news outlet that she and her team had learned a lot from the close encounter with the donut-devouring bears:

“We’ll definitely be learning to slide up our ramp and close the doors to insure that bears don’t get back in there again.”
