Bears Were Stealing This Beekeeper’s Honey So He Made Them His Official Honey Testers

If you can’t beat them…hire them. At least that’s the philosophy of Ibrahim Sedef, a beekeeper from Turkey who was faced with a hairy, thousand-pound problem—bears.

According to BoredPanda, citing a report from Turkish news site DHA, bears were sneaking onto Sedef’s property at night and eating his honey, destroying his beehives in the process. He tried to keep the bears out with fencing and even left food around his hives to placate them but nothing worked. The bears were after one thing and one thing only—that sweet, sweet bee sugar.

So Sedef installed cameras to watch his nocturnal visitors in action…and decided to put them to work.

The bears wanted honey and honey is what they got.

Instead of suffering the destruction of his beehives as the bears searched for honey, Sedef placed different varieties of honey out for the bears to enjoy on neat plates, turning them into his official honey testers.

According to BoredPanda the beekeeper quickly discovered that bears are the connoisseurs of the honey world as they reliably preferred the most expensive honey he set out, a variety known as Anzer honey.

It’s a clever solution and now, if he chooses, Sedef can label his honey as “bear-approved.”

You can see the bears in action in the video below.
