THORNHURST TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- A family in Lackawanna County was expecting a delivery of dog food from the online pet store Chewy, but a hungry bear had other plans.

Video from the Newman family's security camera caught the thief in the act.

The bear can be seen grabbing the box and dragging it off the porch and into the woods.

The family, who live in Thornhurst, tell WNEP they sent the video to Chewy, and the company offered to send a replacement bag of food free of charge so they can finally get their delivery.
