WATCH: Hungry bear steals dumpster

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS) -- Here's a little proof that a hungry bear is willing to go little takeout.

Surveillance video from the Edelweiss Restaurant in Colorado Springs recorded the hungry culprit two nights in a row.

Early Wednesday morning, a bear checked out the dumpsters. Finally, the bear pulled the dumpster out of the camera's view and managed to tip it over.

The owner of Edelweiss said the bear feasted on the garbage and even came back for more the next night.

The restaurant installed the cameras in May after a rash of vandalism.
