Gatlinburg workers get surprise from hungry bear

GATLINBURG, Tenn. (NBC NEWS) - A black bear found himself in a sticky situation earlier this week.

Dylan Hughes and Allen Lester were working at a construction site in Gatlinburg, Tennessee on Monday.

They say that's when a black bear climbed into their van and stole a jar of peanut butter.

They say the bear then proceeded to lay in the grass and enjoy his crunchy snack.

When he was finished, he moved on and left the jar behind.

Hughes and Lester say they were left without an afternoon snack but thankful no one was hurt.
