Bear steals lunch from landscaping truck story image

COLORADO (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Forget about a bully stealing your lunch money, how about a bear stealing your entire lunch.

"That's kinda the running joke around the shop is that he ate your mom's sandwich," said Jason Sharp of Front Range Arborists.

A Colorado landscaping company crew found a bear had climbed into their pickup truck while they were working in a customer's backyard.

The bear hung out for a bit, then helped himself to two turkey sandwiches inside.

After a half hour of hanging out, he climbed out on his own and walked away.

The company's manager is now warning his workers to roll up their windows when they're away from their vehicles.
