Two bears robbed a Krispy Kreme donut truck that stopped in front of a store while making a delivery, inside a military base in Alaska
The driver usually leaves the doors open when he stops at the store, but this time a bear and one of her cubs who were hanging out nearby got into the car, where they remained for about 20 minutes Tuesday morning, Shelley Deano said. Elmendorf-Richardson JMM Express Store Manager. The bears ate the cakes and other pastries, completely ignoring the people who were banging on the side of the truck to scare them away, Deano said.
“He hit the truck and they wouldn’t move. I heard how they opened packages and everything,” he explained. “I was like, ‘They don’t even care,'” he explained.
Unable to scare off the bears, base security personnel were called in, who sounded sirens to force them to leave.
The bears eventually came out and wandered past the store and gas station for a while before heading into the woods.
It’s not unusual to see bears inside the base or around the store, but nothing like this has ever happened, Deano said, adding that the delivery driver now locks the doors when he stops at the store.
“We are careful when we go in and when we go out. When we take out the trash, we always do it with us, especially if it is dark.
Base authorities are “aware of this and other wildlife-related situations in recent months,” said Capt. Lexi Smith, a spokeswoman for the base.
“We urge the public to be vigilant to ensure you protect our wildlife and yourselves. Wild animals may be our neighbors, but they should not be attracted to our human food sources,” he said via email.
