Bear Steals iPad, Tupperware In San Bernardino National Forest (VIDEO)

Maybe this bear just wanted to play "Angry Birds."

Over the weekend, a bear made off with a backpack containing an iPad at Jenks Lake in the San Bernardino National Forest, KTLA reports.

But the iPad didn't occupy the animal for long. Jesse Dinkel, who was fishing at the lake and witnessed the incident, told KTLA that the bear returned a couple of hours later to get a Tupperware full of food.

According to the National Forest Service, an abundant population of black bears lives in the San Bernardino National Forest.

Although their diets include berries, roots, fish, leaves and some mammals, they will scavenge for food at campsites. The National Forrest Service recommends that people store food in airtight or bear-resistant containers.

If you do encounter a bear, don't run. Bears can outrun humans. The National Forest Service advises people to back away slowly, make lots of noise and wave their arms.
