Bear stealing honey caught on camera in China

A black bear has recently destroyed more than 70 beehives while stealing honey at a bee breeding base at a nature reserve in northeast China.

The base started reporting beehive missing cases towards the end of May and suspected that it was done by wild animals.

The monitoring video shows the bear first opening a beehive with its mouth, then running away very quickly, which the staff analyzed as a move to avoid being stung by bees.

The bear came back later and carried away honey from the the beehives after the bees inside had flown away.

There's an additional news video here.
