Bear Gets Paws on Bird Feeder, Enjoys Late-Night Feast on Iowa Deck

A black bear decided a bird feeder on the deck of an Iowa home should instead be a bear feeder, video shared to Facebook on May 5 shows.

The footage, shot by Jason Wirtz from Dubuque, shows the bear surrounded by spilled birdseed as it munches on the remaining contents of a downed bird feeder on the deck.

Wirtz said in a Facebook post that he was woken up at approximately 1 am by the hungry bear, who apparently fancied a late-night snack. Credit: Jason Wirtz via Storyful
