Gutsy Black Bear Takes Off With Trash
Occurred on October 30, 2021 / Gatlinburg, Tennessee, USA
Info from Licensor: "I was in Gatlinburg, TN on the Akesta ski lift and I heard a man shouting at something three cars ahead. And as I went up the hill, I noticed I was three cars away from a bear. I could have ski lifted into him. When I got off the ride, I ran to the bridge to see where the bear went and he or she was hiding but looked scared. The workers were yelling and shooing the bear, but it obviously didn't work because the bear started up the stairs straight for them to get to the dumpster. The bear proceeded to dig until it won the jackpot with the garbage bag and ran off like no big deal. I was so amazed by it all."
