Bear in a candy store

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:

Avenging the death of his gelatinous brethren, eh?

Metta,
Retro. :)
What is the final conviction that comes when radical attention is razor-edge sharp? That the object of the mind is mind-made (manomaya). (Ven. Ñāṇananda)

Having understood name-and-form, which is a product of prolificity,
And which is the root of all malady within and without,
He is released from bondage to the root of all maladies,
That Such-like-one is truly known as 'the one who has understood'.
(Snp 3.6)

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. :)
