Home / National News / Bear Caught on Video Dangling From Homeowner's Deck


(NEW YORK) — A Colorado homeowner captured on camera the moment a bear was able to pull itself onto her elevated deck by using its mouth.

The bear can be seen in the video dangling from the deck with only its front two paws. After trying unsuccessfully to get a better grasp on the deck, the bear finally pushed himself up enough to be able to clasp its jaw onto one of the railings.

The bear then scooted himself up to stand on his hind legs and looked around the deck, and down below, before jumping over the railing and onto the deck.

The video shot by the homeowner, who was not identified, was shared by San Francisco ABC station KGO-TV.

The homeowner told KGO-TV she occasionally sees bears in the area but never up close on her deck. The bear eventually wandered off the property.
