A hungry bear helped himself to a takeout dinner at a German restaurant in Colorado Springs.

The manager of Edelweiss told The Denver Post the bear passed by a recycling bin early Wednesday and followed his nose to a dumpster holding leftovers from the previous night.

Surveillance video shows the bear on his hind legs, flipping open dumpster's lid and nimbly rolling it out of a view into the parking lot to enjoy his feast.

The container was later found knocked over. The bear returned for more early Thursday.

Wildlife officials say if the bear keeps coming back, it will be tagged and relocated to the mountains — or euthanized if that doesn't work.
