A Colorado restaurant experienced a unique dine-and-dash as a surveillance camera captured a greedy bear walking off with two dumpsters of leftovers.

Management at Edelweiss restaurant in Colorado Springs says animals often go dumpster diving in search of food, but saw one greedy bear go overboard Wednesday, walking off with an entire dumpster. The pickings must have been good, since the bear returned on Thursday for a repeat performance.

Edelweiss's owners told local station WXYZ that the dumpsters weigh approximately 226 kilograms each. They say bear visits are common, but they now plan to start chaining the dumpsters to prevent more food thefts.
