Sweet Tooth Unleashed: Massive Brown Bear Raids California 7-Eleven for Candy Treats

An unexpected furry visitor made a midnight feast of the candy aisle at a 7-Eleven in Olympic Valley, California.

A gigantic brown bear strolled into the convenience store, delighting in the selection of candy bars. At the same time, a stunned cashier observed the surprising scenario.

A 54-year-old cashier, Christopher Kinson, was on his night shift on September 6 when the unusual incident unfolded.

At around 1:30 am, he noticed the entrance door swing open with no apparent customer. Upon looking down, he was astounded to discover the uninvited guest β€” a brown bear indulging in a late-night candy spree.

Kinson, who hails from Wisconsin, expressed his astonishment, “Seeing the door open without anyone walking in was startling. But realizing it was a bear… it was unbelievable.” He mentioned that the bear was larger in person than in the surveillance footage.

The cashier kept a safe distance, ready to fly through the back door if necessary. Despite his initial fear, he soon realized that the bear was primarily interested in the store’s edible offerings.

“Initially, it was scary, but after a while, I knew it was just looking for food. We should always remain cautious; predicting a wild animal’s behavior isn’t straightforward.”

The bear, seemingly practicing good manners, selectively picked up chocolates individually, mimicking a regular customer’s behavior.

Kinson couldn’t help but find humor in the situation. “Its ‘politeness’ in taking one candy bar at a time was almost hilarious,” he said.

Following a few rounds of indulgence, the bear retreated for a short break. Seizing this opportunity, Kinson attempted to barricade the door with a broom handle and a trash bag. Unfortunately, his efforts couldn’t deter the sweet-toothed intruder for long.

Kinson explained the bear’s in-and-out maneuver: “It came in, sniffed around, and left after grabbing some food. It repeated this a few times and then disappeared for half an hour. That’s when I blocked the door. We can’t risk becoming their regular food supply.”
