Careful black bear raids Colorado chocolate shop

Bear visits candy shop

DENVER -- A bear in a candy store is nothing like a bull in a china shop. At least not this one.

A black bear went in and out of a candy store in the Colorado resort town of Estes Park multiple times early one July morning, but he used the front door and didn't break a thing. He did, however, steal some treats.

Surveillance video at the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory shows the bear opening the door, grabbing some candy, taking it outside and eating it, then returning for more. He made seven trips in about 15 minutes, finally leaving after a passing car apparently scared him away.

Store owner Jo Adams says the bear managed to pop open the door because the deadbolt wasn't completely closed.

But she says the only evidence her careful visitor left behind was some dirt on a counter and some paper on the ground.
