Minnesota Zoo bears destroy fake campsite, freak out campers

itemprop

When you decide to "get away from it all" this summer and conquer some wilderness for a weekend, remember that the creatures that live there will likely check out your goods and steal what they please.

The Minnesota Zoo helped campers see what could happen to their own campsite if they don't store food properly. Zookeepers set up a mock camp site and let three brown bears go to town on the poorly stored food. Maybe you'll think twice about bringing a smelly bedtime snack into the tent with you this summer unless you'd like an unexpected giant visitor to slash through the top of your tent wall.

There's a video below to help drill it in.
