Home-Invading Bear Raids California Family's Pantry and Freezer Before Fleeing

A home-invading bear snuck into a California family’s home in Nevada City and raided their pantry and freezer on Monday, June 28.

“Woke up Monday morning,” Alan Aragon, who shot this footage, told Storyful. “Walked out of my bedroom and there he was.”

Aragon said he “was in shock and terrified” when he first saw the furry burglar in his Sierra Nevada foothills home, but calmed down once he saw the bear did not seem interested in him.

“Not sure I was so calm in the first video but after recording him for a few minutes he wasn’t aggressive and didn’t seem to care about me,” Aragon said. “Although when we caught eyes many times I was hoping for the best.”

In the video, the bear can be seen rummaging through the pantry and freezer and munching on his finds. At one point, Aragon’s wife can be heard asking the bear to close the freezer.

Aragon said the bear did not cause any damage.

“He took what he wanted out of the pantry,” he said. “Opened up the freezer and ate. Once the bear left he was gone. Haven’t seen him since.” Credit: Alan Aragon via Storyful
