A bear eating gummy bears? That’s not technically cannibalism, but for some reason it still doesn’t feel right.
The owner of this Canadian convenience store expects to have some strange customers every once in a while, and this bear might take the cake for the strangest he’s ever had.
Jay deGoesbriand, the man who owns Tipton’s Gas Bar where the bear perused the aisles, had just finished sweeping his store and was enjoying his morning cup of coffee when he almost had to do a double take.
As he looked at the front door, he saw a black bear helping itself in and beginning to walk the rows of products to find something to eat.
In the bear’s defense, it is getting close to hibernation season, so bruins are trying to up the calorie count for their long winter’s nap. That must be why this black bear was very selective about what snack it wanted from the store.
Security camera footage shows the bear walking past plenty of food choices and going towards the candy aisle, and once it gets there, it only stops to (strangely enough) pull down a bag of gummy bears.
After it chose its snack, the black bear wandered back out the door to tear into the gummy bears. And you might think that the bear would have tried to distance itself from the “scene of the crime,” but that didn’t happen at all.
