"Bear at door" officially best reason package isn't delivered


Those notices at your door that you’ve missed a package delivery from Canada Post can be a drag, unless there’s a very specific reason given for not being able to make the drop-off.

Vancouver-area resident Matthew Fane found one of those notices on his door, and took to Twitter with a photo to share the funny–and legit–reason the Canada Post carrier gave for not delivering:

Fane told the HuffPost B.C. bears are a common sighting where he lives, but he didn’t want to say more about the incident lest the Canada Post worker find his or herself in any hot water on the job.

Fane seems to be taking the whole situation in stride:
