TAHOE CITY, Calif. (CBS) - This black bear was sniffing some shopping carts in search of food outside of a supermarket in Tahoe City, CA.

The Placer County Sheriff's Office shared the video earlier this week to remind people that bears are on the prowl this time of year, hunting for food before hibernation.

Bears have also been spotted in the St. Louis area earlier this year.
