Like many of us, the Newman family get many packages delivered to their door. And, thanks to their large porch, if they’re not in, the local postie knows to simply leave the parcel just outside of the front door. They’ve never had a problem with this system, until now!

When a package of dog food failed to arrive on time, the Newmans contacted their postie and was assured it had been delivered earlier that day. Curious, they checked their surveillance footage and what they found made their jaws drop!

An unusual thief

When they scanned through their security footage of the day, the family were shocked to see a most unlikely thief, no doubt attracted by the scent of poor Fido’s dinner. But, the cunning thief wasn’t one of the neighborhood’s dogs but a small brown bear!

The video shows the rather cute bear approach the porch, have a sniff to be sure that the package’s contents are edible and then sink her teeth into the box and drag it into the woods with her. Perhaps to share with friends and family!

The Newman’s shared the video with the dog food manufacturer and had the kibble replaced along with extra treats for the hoodwinked pooch!

Watch the video below to see this most unlikely thief!


PORCH PIRATE: This bear stole a box delivering dog food from right off the porch of the Newman family in Thornhurst, Lackawanna County! They contacted Chewy.com and showed this video... and now Chewy is sending more food for free! Maybe Chewy should expand it's product line to include furry friends like this one! ?
