Oct. 10 (UPI) -- A Colorado pizzeria shared security camera footage of a mother bear and her two cubs breaking into the shop and feasting on dough and salami.

Antonio's Real New York Pizza posted a video to Facebook showing the three bears rooting through the Estes Park eatery's kitchen early Sunday.


Store owner Antonio DeSousa wrote the bears got into the restaurant by ripping out a window in the drive-through area of the restaurant.

DeSousa included a plea for police to spare the lives of wildlife in similar situations as bears are now forced to get more creative when they search for food in urban areas.

"Every dumpster in town is now bear proof which leaves only our homes, cars and businesses," he wrote.

There were no reports of the bears that broke into the pizzeria being euthanized after leaving the scene.

DeSousa said employees spent Sunday morning cleaning and repairing the damage so the eatery could reopen about noon.
