TAHOE (KRON) — A deputy in Tahoe played a game of hide-and-seek with a bear he found rummaging through a trash can.
A Placer County Sheriff’s Deputy caught the bear foraging for food at a Shell Gas Station.
Deputy Staley saw it as the perfect opportunity for a friendly game of hide-and-seek.
In the video, Staley doesn’t appear to leave his vehicle, but the bear seems fully engaged in the game.
While the encounter was the most adorable thing, deputies warn people not to interact with the animals.
