Bear feasts in Tennessee sweet shop rampage
Friday 21 October 2011
A bear has feasted on pecan logs, caramel apples and other treats at a sweet shop in the Smoky Mountains resort town Gatlinburg, Tennessee.
Employees reporting for work found the bear at the Ole Smoky Candy Kitchen, where the animal apparently had knocked a hole in a glass front door to enter, according to The Mountain Press.
Police propped open several back doors and made loud noises, and the bear ran into the woods.
The animal had spread sweets on the floor, and wrappers and packaging were strewn throughout a back storeroom. Pecan logs had been chewed and chunks were missing out of caramel apples.
Bob Miller of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park said bears are active this time of year, searching for food before hibernation.
