WHISTLER VILLAGE, British Columbia, Sept. 30 (UPI) -- Authorities in British Columbia said they are searching for a black bear that strolled into a pizzeria, ate an entire pizza and skipped out on its bill.

Conservation officers said the bear was spotted rifling through the trash outside Fat Tony's pizza parlor in Whistler Village shortly after 6 p.m. Monday and soon walked into the establishment through the door and grabbed a beef and blue cheese pizza from the counter, the Vancouver Sun reported Friday.

Employee Colin Mont said the bear left after finishing the pie and did not damage anything at the store other than the outside trash can.

Conservation officers said they are considering setting up a trap for the bear outside the restaurant.
