Bear steals restaurant's dumpster twice in a row

(CBS News) I order take-out from restaurants from time to time, but this is just ridiculous: a hungry bear in Colorado Springs, Colo., decided to go further than just a little dumpster-diving by stealing a whole dumpster -- two nights in a row! Watch one of the heists unfold in the video above.

As reported by CBS-affiliate KCNC in Denver, "The bear was targeting the dumpster behind the Edelweiss Restaurant, a Colorado Springs landmark known for its German cuisine." The owner had set up surveillance cameras to try and capture vandals, but much to his surprise, ended up capturing footage of a whole different kind of vandal (and species!) than he ever expected. I don't know about you, but I'd say this bear is definitely way "smarter than the average bear!"
