Morning Bear Mystery Answered

DSCN0217On  Monday I asked a why bear (apparently) mangled my suet feeder to get at the suet, but did not eat the suet.

The answer, provided correctly by Mary Kostus:  hot pepper suet. 

I liked the other comments as well.

BTW, the hot-pepper suet was squirrel-resistant, and the bear didn't like it either (after he ripped down the feeder).
