That's what happens when you build a candy store too close to a forest. :tongue:

Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)

I get the impression that he/she had been observing for a while beforehand, from a distance, "ok...so the humans go in via that door, and come out again with sweet-smelling goods on them...ah, I see - you open the door from that side...right." The bear seemed quite familiar with the correct operation of that door. :)
