Black Bear Eats 20 Pounds of Dog Food, Falls Asleep in Man’s Backyard

He probably didn’t have as much fun as the bear that broke into the pie shop

Bears are getting braver and braver lately — earlier this week, for example, one broke into a Colorado pie shop and ate 38 pies, avoiding all the strawberry rhubarb and leaving a trail of sugar and cherries behind.

Now, a second bear has managed to steal a 20-pound bag of dog food from a man’s garage and then fall asleep in his neighbor’s backyard without a care in the world — this time, in Florida.

Bob Cross, who found the bear casually snacking on dog food in his backyard, noted that it spent at least half an hour eating. “It laid all the way down and the thing just rolled right over,” Cross told ABC News. “I thought, ‘You’ve got to be kidding me.’”

The bear proceeded to take a nice nap on Cross’ lawn for the next hour and a half. Eventually, the well-rested bear woke up and wandered off into the woods.
