Surveillance video at a pizzeria shows three bears rummaging through the refrigerator looking for food.

Employees at Antonio's Real New York Pizza in Estes Park, Colorado, came in on Sunday to find a large mess in the kitchen.

The night before a mother bear and her two cubs broke into the shop looking for food.

The hungry bears ate a few trays of dough and a chunk of salami, according to a Facebook post by the restaurant.

The post says that the bears ripped a window out of the wall at the store's drive thru.

The city is outfitted with bear-proof trash cans, so the animals had to be a little more creative to find food.

'While I don’t advocate feeding wildlife in any way, I believe it would have been much better to have left the old dumpster tops in place because they wouldn’t become desperate enough to break into houses or businesses and the damage in dollars would be much lower,' the Facebook post says.

Employees cleaned up the mess and the store was able to open on schedule.

    They might not even have been hungry. Bears love to investigate anything that smells like food. Maybe put up a stronger or a different type of window. Keep the bear proof bins, otherwise they will be back all the time.
