Canada Post fails to deliver due to “bear at door”

Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night, but perhaps bears will stay these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.  At least that was the case this week for Canada Post, which left a note blaming “bear at door” for failure to deliver some mail to a Vancouver-area man.

Matthew Fane took to Twitter to share the delightfully honest missive from the country’s postal service.

The letter carrier, it seems, was never in danger.

It’s not clear whether it was a grizzly or black bear that thwarted the delivery, but the region is home to both species. Canada Post even offered to look into the matter.

The original Tweet has now been shared more than 3,000 times by social media users who, no doubt, feel the same.
