Shocking Ring video footage captures moment bear breaks into family home as urgent warning issued | The Sun

A SHOCKING video shows a bear breaking into a family's home and heading straight for their kitchen.

The owner of the home was stunned to see the large bear searching through her refrigerator in Connecticut.

Video captured by the home's Ring surveillance system shows the bear wandering around inside.

It starts by sniffing out the hallway then casually makes its way from the living room to the kitchen.

Homeowner Helena Richardson was shocked to see the wild animal moving lazily through her space.

"You can see him going from room to room, as comfortable as I am in my house," she told local CBS affiliate WFSB.

"My mom made some lasagna, I left it in the freezer and the bear just took it."

In the kitchen, the huge bear can be seen opening the freezer and sniffing around.

It calmly snags its feast and manages to sneak out through a window.

Richardson said her Ring camera alerted her to the fact that the bear found its way inside.

"I knew nobody was at home at the time, so I checked and it was a bear," she said.

"It stayed in the house for about 35 minutes."

While bears breaking into houses might not seem common, the number has risen in Connecticut in recent years.

Black bears are known to more actively look for food in the fall as they prepare for winter.

The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection is now urging residents in the region to be more "bear aware."

Colorado Parks and Wildlife also shared some guidance on bearproofing homes.

The organization asks people who live near wildlife to lock their doors and windows.

If windows are left open, these must be barred for safety.

They suggest installing extra-sturdy doors if there's a freezer or bird feeder in the garage, since these objects attract bears.

Wildlife officials also suggest locking cars and closing vehicle windows and making sure that you don't leave food or anything smelly inside.

Aromatics include gum, lip balm, air fresheners, and lotions.

They also suggest that you scare bears away if they're passing your house or yard by clapping, yelling firmly, or banging pots and pans.

If a bear enters your home and you're inside, make sure the bear can leave through the window or door it entered and avoid cornering it, approaching it, or blocking escape routes, officials said.
