Boozing bear visits locked Indian temple looking for a swig of lamp oil

This bear has developed a taste for the oil used to light lamps outside a temple in India.

Security camera footage has shown that the animal regularly visits the temple in Coonoor, Tamil Nadu in the dead of night try to wet his whistle with the lamp fuel.

After watching the bear's antics on CCTV, temple officials decided to lock the doors so that it couldn't get to its favourite tipple.

This clip shows the frustrated bear pushing the locked doors before wandering off back to the forest.
