This is the moment a Florida family was left baffled after a bear swiped their Taco Bell delivery off of their front porch.
Laidy Guiterrez and Daniel Bula had ordered $45 of food on Uber Eats to their home in Longwood on Friday night.
The bear had other ideas and snagged the bag of food right after it was dropped off by a delivery woman.
Home surveillance footage captured the animal grabbing the brown bag of food with its mouth and coming back soon after to collect the drinks.

By the time the family went to retrieve their food, it was gone. Uber Eats reportedly refunded the family for their stolen meal.
The video shows the delivery driver as she arrives at the house and drops off a brown bag and drink tray outside the front door.
After she places the order on the ground, she snaps a quick picture of it before she heads off.
Soon enough, a 300 to 400lb black bear comes strolling onto the property and approaches the front door.
The bear then bends down and quickly took the bag by its teeth and leisurely walks away.
That’s when Guiterrez and her daughter went to open the door just ten minutes later and saw an empty front porch.
‘The bear took the food,’ Guiterrez says.
Nicole Castro, Guiterrez’s niece said that the bear then came back and took the sodas.
This isn’t the first time that a bear has shown up on the family’s property before as Guiterrez said that the animals are regulars in the neighborhood.
In a video captured just days before, a similar black bear stood in their yard as someone caught it on video.
‘Incredible. It’s very large,’ the man said in the video as the bear looked at the camera.

Guiterrez told FOX 35 that though bears are common in the area, she has never experienced one stealing.

Human-bear encounters have risen in recent years as both populations have grown since the 1980s, according to the Florida Wildlife Federation.
The bears are protected by the Bear Conservation Rule, which makes it illegal to hunt, take, shoot, injure, or collect black bears.
