Failure to Deliver: UPS Driver + Bear = No Package in Asheville

ASHEVILLE – They might trudge through rain, sleet, and snow, but UPS driver in Asheville wasn’t about to battle a bear to deliver a package.

“”There was a bear in the driveway so he (UPS driver) couldn’t drop it off on my front porch,” Asheville resident Marcy Lanier told WLOS.

So instead, Lanier said the deliveryman left the package in her mailbox on the street, along with a “sorry we missed you” notice with this reason for not leaving the parcel at the door: “Bear in driveway.”


Lanier thought the note was funny, took a picture of it, and posted it on Facebook last Friday.”

Manier shared a photo of the failure to deliver notice and it has since gone viral:
