Residents of Anchorage, Alaska, were surprised to find two bears raiding a Krispy Kreme doughnut truck on Tuesday morning. The truck was stopped outside a convenience store on Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson JMM Express when the sow and one of her cubs that loiter nearby sauntered inside.
Shelly Deano, the store manager, said the bears stayed for probably 20 minutes, chomping on doughnut holes and other pastries, ignoring the banging on the side of the van that was aimed at shooing them away. Deano was able to snap a few photos of the animals chowing down on the treats.
“I could hear them breaking open the packages and everything,” Deano said. “It was pretty funny.”
The bears eventually left the truck, but not before they had their fill of doughnuts. The driver of the truck usually left his doors open when he stopped at the store, but this time the bears took advantage of the open door.
The incident has been a source of amusement for the residents of Anchorage, but it serves as a reminder to be aware of the wildlife in the area. Bears are common in Alaska, and it is important to be aware of their presence and take precautions to avoid any potential conflicts.
