A man arrived home in Sierra Madre, California, on October 28, to find the front door open and a bear in his kitchen helping itself to a bucket of fried chicken.
Resident John Holden captured video of the bear sitting on his kitchen countertop digging its snout into the bucket.
Speaking to KABC, Holden said there was at least one more bear inside his home and another outside too. He eventually managed to get them out by making loud noises, KABC reported.
“I’ve had a lot of other encounters with them. I’ve actually had them bump into me a couple times in the backyard, but definitely never in the house like that,” Holden told KABC. "That was something else and they sure made a mess of the place,” he added. Credit: John Holden via Storyful
