They Are Jealous Of Our Lifestyle
SAN BERNADINO, California- A bear busted into a San Bernardino County home and was gobbling up a box of chocolates from a couple's refrigerator just when they arrived home. The bear pushed aside vegetables in the fridge to get the two-pound box of sweets. Officials said the bear also tried to open a bottle of champagne but was not successful. "Humans live inside because it's safer and nicer than living outside. Why wouldn't the animals who live outside get jealous and want what we have inside? They can get vegetables outside, but inside is where you find the chocolate and champagne," said UC-Riverside biologist Peter Murat.

"You gotta' remember, their sense of smell is 1000 times better than ours and there was a mighty scent coming off what we had to work with. But after a bit, Jake shook it off and found our guy.
