California resident's unwelcome visitor -- a black bear!

California Resident's Unwelcome Visitor - a Black Bear!
This resident of Glendora on the outskirts of Los Angeles awoke from napping on his couch one evening to find an unwelcome guest trying to enter his house.

Just after 2am in July 2012, the black bear strolled up the driveway of the house and poked his nose in the back door.

Luckily, the bear was noisy enough to wake up the sleeping resident almost immediately and he was able to shoo the bear away.

The owner of the footage told Storyful: "We see bears every once in a while, they are usually very cautious and have never done anything but run away when they see us. Usually they are just hanging out in the shade eating our avocados from our trees. I had a couple mornings before school where I would try to chase one down and it would end up in a tree. But we only had the one time they tried to actually get in the house. He came back a couple nights after the events in the video to chew on the door a little bit, but at that point we were making sure to keep it locked!"

I'm sure most people did. But did anyone notice the ghost-like orb in the corner?

Yep; but probably just a gnat attracted by the "recording" light on the camera.

Really AOL? You said he was 'paralyzed in fear' 'what woke him up paralyzed him' from the headline link! He doesn't look paralyzed to me you stupid author!

what happens when we continue to destroy the land that belong to the animals, they are scrounging for food.

Thank you! Finally someone agrees with me! This was their land long before we showed up! Here in CO, (Boulder area), if a bear comes down from the mtns looking for food, they tag it and take it back into the mtns. If it comes back again, they kill it. I HATE the way the majority of animals are treated on this planet!! Makes me sick!!

I'm more interested in the ghostly visitor down in the right hand corner....an ancestor watching over him, perhaps?

W T F? Is he just saying "Shoo bear. SHOO"? I would have chucked that beer bottle that's on the table at the door! Who noticed the orb in the lower right corner of the video?

The caption says he's "Paralyzed with fear". It appears he jumped up and yelled at the bear, then moved toward it to make it leave. Who the hell came up with that caption? Moron.
