Bear swipes Amazon package from Connecticut home
BRISTOL, Conn. - A home surveillance camera captured an unusual porch pirate grabbing an Amazon package from outside a Bristol, Connecticut home on Aug. 23.
The culprit: a bear.
Adam Levine, who lives at the home, shared the footage of the black bear making off with the delivery.
According to Levine’s wife Kristin, it contained scented toilet paper. The bear, she said ended up dropping off the parcel in a neighbor’s yard.

The couple also posted photos of the toilet paper to Facebook.
Kristin joked that maybe the bear "just wanted a lavender scented tush."
Kristin told NBC Connecticut she received an alert from her security system about five minutes after Amazon dropped of the package and was "taken aback because I wasn’t expecting anyone else in my driveway."
"It was hysterical like I said, I knew nothing in there was going to be irreplaceable so it was a fun afternoon for sure," Levine said.
According to the state’s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, black bears started to make a comeback in the mid-1800s. The state has recently seen a rapid increase in the bear population.
It’s not the first time a bear was caught in the act. According to Q13 FOX, a bear in Pennsylvania swiped a delivery of dog food from the online pet store Chewy in 2019.
