Please disregard the timestamp on the video. It shows a date of January 7, 2014. According to the Colorado Department of Wildlife, this video was captured last Friday.

This footage is somewhat reminiscent of the first time I tried to detach my laptop from the docking bay we use here at the studio. I'm glad there weren't any cameras rolling. Actually, I'm not sure the bear isn't getting better results than I did.
