Toogee Sielsch, who took the video, says he spotted one bear going in. But when the second bear arrives -- the two get into it.

"I guess one of them left his dishes in the sink and the other one wasn't happy about it," said Sielsch.

We are told the two bears shacked up peacefully the next night.

They are "best buds again."
