Mailman’s excuse ‘Bear at door’

For Ipad users:

Postal workers typically take the blame, and the fury, when a package is not delivered on time, but no one is blaming one postal worker in Canada for failing to make the appointed rounds.

The Canada Post employee checked "Other" on the package slip to explain why the package was not delivered Monday and then left a note, writing, "Bear at the door."

Two days later, Fane also tweeted a photo of the bear that he says was taken by the postal worker.
Fane seemed to take the delayed package delivery in stride, humorously using the hashtags #bearmail and #MeanwhileinCanada with his tweets.

"A black bear is very common," Fane told ABC News today. "They don't really bug anyone, as long as you don't bug them."

"So, no, it wasn't a big deal to us in our area at all, just funny," he said.

Fane was able to pick up his package Tuesday night at a postal delivery station near his home.

that's a good one

have a cat that will bang the screen door to get let in.
last Oct a friend was visiting and we heard the screen door, so he went to let the cat in. He open the front door and then closed it, then turns and says "its not Parker" there was a bear on the front porch eating the pumpkin and his back side was hitting the screen
