Watch: Enterprising Bear Tries To Steal Dumpster From Lyons Marijuana Store

July 24, 2019

A surveillance camera filmed a bear attempting to take and open a dumpster at a Colorado marijuana dispensary.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife spokesman Jason Clay told The Daily Camera the bear was captured on video at The Bud Depot in Lyons just before midnight July 17.

The video shows the bear pulling the large metal trash bin out of an enclosed area and unsuccessfully attempting to open its top lid in the town 44 miles northwest of Denver.

"It tries to take the bear resistant dumpster home with him, but cannot," the Parks and Wildlife social media post says. "No reward for this bear."
