A mama bear and her cub in Anchorage, Alaska, found a Krispy Kreme van parked outside a store at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richards and made it into a happy meal, USA Today reported.

The van’s driver left the door open while he was making his delivery, KTUU reported.

Krispy Kreme Alaska shared photos of the pilfered pastries.
