Bear Surprisingly Shops for Candies in a Convenience Store in California

Videos of animals acting like humans are one of the fastest forms of content to go viral on the internet. Those animals will make you laugh, cry, or simply smile because of their cute little gestures. Most of all, animals can shock you, mainly when you witness the scene firsthand. Even those from the wild can suddenly appear in the city, and they would just enter stores, parks, or residences. Recently, a bear that casually visited a shop in California was reported.

The shocking moment was caught on camera — it’s as if the bear was a regular customer there. The huge bear entered a 7/11 store in Olympic Valley in the viral clip. It strolled around for 30 minutes as if searching for its favorite snack in every aisle. Each time the bear grabbed an item, it would bring it outside and enter the store again. It reached for candy bears, observed items, and even got a taste of what seemed to be bread.

Christopher Kinson, the cashier who was on shift that night, was the witness to the whole scenario. He was interviewed by SWNS, where he shared an experience he never thought would happen in his life.

“I always kept my distance, and I had the back door near me so I could escape if it charged me,” Christopher said. “I was scared initially, but they just want to eat. You always have to be careful, though. We don’t know how exactly they are thinking.” Thankfully, the cashier knows what to do when he encounters a wild animal. A person is not supposed to approach them, as it might cause an even bigger commotion — or worse, someone might get hurt.

“It’s funny. It’s like it was purposely polite to take one candy bar at a time; it’s almost like it had manners,” he added. Since Kinson had noticed the bear’s shopping routine, he took advantage of it. As soon as the bear stepped outside, the 7/11 cashier hurriedly blocked the door with a garbage bag and a mop.
