Bear breaks in, enjoys pie feast at Colorado bakery

London, July 17 (IANS) A hungry bear in the US broke into a Colorado bakery at night and ate 24 pies to assuage his hunger, media reported on Friday.

“He went for the apple and the cherry flavours… but he turned his nose up at the strawberry rhubarb variety, so he was a picky little guy,” The Guardian quoted the daughter of the owner of the Colorado Cherry Company as saying.

The bear broke into the store, located in the city of Lyons, through a window and climbed on top of the oven before eating “about two dozen pies, bags of cocoa, and a bag of sugar”, according to Mikaela Lehnert, the owner’s daughter.

The damage was minimal, aside from the broken window. The owners have boarded it up and don’t want him to become a regular visitor.

“We have a feeling he knows it’s here so he’s going to come back,” she said.
