This is the adorable moment a full-grown bear looked guilty as he was caught rummaging in a garbage bin.
Deputy Staley from Placer County Sheriff’s Office, Tahoe City, California, spotted the hungry animal going through the bin in search for food on the night of May 24.
‘I see you’ shouted the deputy, as the bear popped his head up and looked back at him guiltily.
The animal than quickly dived again behind the bin, eager to get back to his late-night snack.
Public Information Officer at Placer County Sheriff’s Office, Andrew Scott uploaded the video on social media, saying: “This is prime time for bears to come out of hibernation in search for food, and they are not shy about getting into your homes, cars, garbage cans, you name it!”
