Caught on camera: Dumpster-diving bear steals from CO restaurant

(KUSA) What some might call a dumpster diver, Dieter Schnakenberg calls a dumpster driver. What else would you call it when a six-foot tall bear wheels away the 500-pound dumpster you left behind your restaurant?

"He just grabbed right onto it," said Edelweiss Restaurant's manager on Thursday. "There's just something about a bear taking a trash Dumpster away."

Twice in the last week, a large bear has walked to the back of the well-known German restaurant in search of authentic German food. Both times the scoundrel has been caught on the restaurants new security system.

"We've only had [the system] for a few weeks now," Schnakenberg said.
