It is not uncommon to see black bears in the mountain town of Gatlinburg. Gatlinburg, located in eastern Tennessee, USA, is the gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, home to hundreds of black bears. There, a black bear stole food from the car (Black Bear Steal Snacks). The bear was seen standing upright. He opened the car door and stole candy from inside. Video is becoming increasingly viral on social media.
In a cabin in Gatlinburg while some boys were having bachelors party, the bear stole candy from the car. The boys present there saw the bear doing this and were surprised.
In the video it can be seen that the bear is standing on two legs and is trying to open the car. He opens the car door and enters. After a few seconds he exits. A packet of food remains in his mouth.
In the video, a man is seen saying, ‘He is stepping inside the car. I can’t believe it.
The bear loses his interest with the food he stole. He puts Peanut’s packet on the ground before going away. Black bears often venture out of the woods to hunt for food in Gatlinburg.
Wildlife officer Dan Gibbs told WVLT, “There are a lot of people in Gatlinburg and everyone who lives here knows that there are food and air-conditioned habits for bears.”
In 2019, pictures of a bear and three of its cubs playing inside a car in Gatlinburg went viral on social media.
