What happens when you're a bear and don't want to waste food? You go dumpster diving. That's what this bear in Steamboat Springs did -- until someone kicked him out.

YouTuber boatskier1 approaches the dumpster diving bear, greets him politely, yet casually by saying "Hey bear." When the bear does not reply, he insists on getting his attention. The man walks closer calling the bear and the rustling/clanking gets louder.

A few yells later, while rudely interrupting the trash treasure hunt, the man definitely gets the bear's attention.

The dumpster diver pops his head out of the dumpster and with the "encouragement" of the man, clumsily makes his way out. The bear looks back one more time to ensure that the man is indeed going to waste all of that trash food.
