Mmmm, night pizza. What wouldn’t I do for it? The answer is: Not much! A Canadian black bear agrees. She (I’ve decided it’s a “she” cuz I relate so much to her journey) broke into the front room of a house in Oro-Medonte, Ontario, Canada this past Saturday, lured by the scent of delicious Italian pie. Tragically, she soon discovered the three pizza boxes she was baited by were completely empty. Stupid powerful bear nose that’s over 2,000 times stronger than any human’s!
Here’s the crime captured on video surveillance:
The house owner, Sean Atkinson, says (via Yahoo Canada):
“Don’t leave garbage out in Canada. This is entirely my fault, although I’ve never seen a bear open a front door like this before”
It’s true. The bear broke in easily. It’s only around the 1:40 mark, when she decides it’s time to hit the ol’ dusty trail (literally), that things start getting complicated. Our furry friend has trouble with the deceivingly simple “push” exit. The screen door is springing open, but not wide enough! Add that minor inconvenience to an empty stomach? You’ve got one pissed off bear. She finally busts through the door using all her brute strength, and flees into the night.
20 minutes later, the bear was spotted at Pizza Pizza, Canada’s late-night last resort for desperate drunks. She ordered the $5 walk-in special with creamy garlic dipping sauce, and ate it outside on the curb. Witnesses recall the bear muttering, “Grrrr, this stuff is shit! The crust tastes like cardboard. Oh wait, I’m eating the box.”
