I just love this actual footage captured on camera:

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

Metta,
Retro. :)
Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)

"If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good." - Thomas J. Watson

Never again...

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. :)
