A black bear was caught on camera strolling into Crazy Bruce’s Liquor store in Bristol, Connecticut, on Monday. The bear set off the automatic sliding doors’ sensor while walking past, causing the doors to open and allowing it into the store, .
The liquor store shared security footage of the extremely casual bear walking into the store on its Facebook account.
Luckily, when a store employee spotted the bear, they quickly locked the store’s inner door, barring the bear’s access to the sweet, sweet alcohol it so craved (maybe — I don’t know what bears like).
An unsuspecting customer also walked into the store after the bear, completely unaware of its presence, according to the Courant, and was ushered inside and to safety by an employee. (The customer can be seen in the footage shared by the liquor store.)
“The customer didn’t even see the bear when he came in — we told him to hurry up, but he didn’t know why. He was kind of shocked,” Dan Niedzwiecki, an assistant store manager told the Courant. “At the time he had no clue — he was just walking in minding his own business.”
No one was harmed, and eventually the bear made its way out of the store’s entrance and back into the parking lot, perhaps in search of a liquor store willing to cater to its bear needs.
