In other news, yesterday in Louisiana, a Dumpster diving bear was captured. A human dumpster diver was in the dumpster when the bear decided to dive-in too:
The dumpster diver came face to face with a 250 pound black bear.
"The guy was digging in the dumpster. What happened was apparently he was in the dumpster and the bear probably smelled the food shaken around and the bear creeped up on top of the dumpster and startled the guy," said Winn Dixie employee Vanessa Savoy. "Somehow he managed to jump out and run into the store and told them up front you got a big black bear out by you alls dumpsters," said Store Director Shayne Hall.
