At least this bear had good manners.
A 7-Eleven cashier was shocked when a large brown bear repeatedly entered his store to enjoy some candy bars.
Christopher Kinson, 54, says he was working at night when the animal entered his convenience store in Olympic Valley, Calif., on Sept. 6, reports PEOPLE.
Kinson says he saw the front door open but when no human entered, he looked down to see a brown bear munching away on some sweets.
“Initially, I was surprised. I see the door open, and I don’t see a torso, and I am like, ‘Oh my God. It’s a bear,’” Kinson told British news agency SWNS.
“I always kept my distance, and I had the back door near me so I could escape if it charged me. I was scared initially, but they just want to eat. You always have to be careful, though. We don’t know how exactly they are thinking.”
Kinson found it amazing too that the bear repeatedly entered and left the store to take one or two candy bars each time.
“It’s funny,” he told SWNS. “It’s like it was purposely polite to take one candy bar at a time; it’s almost like it had manners.”
After a 30-minute eating spree, the bear finally stopped entering the store during which Kinson was able to lock the door.
