"Our biologist believes it had learned the cues of the sound of a garage door opening. It had learned that the sound of a garage door opening meant dinner," said Bill Vogrin, public information officer for Parks and Wildlife. "This bear was so fat from eating human food it couldn't climb a tree ... so it made a bed under a tree."Despite its taste for human food, the bear managed to avoid two traps baited with doughnuts, icing, syrup and dog food, after Backstrom's encounter, Vogrin said.
"It takes an enormous amount of strength, something I could never do," O'Dubhraic said.
The bear accessed the home through a crank-style window on the first floor that was damaged in a recent windstorm and had been left ajar."The bear popped it open and broke off the crank mechanism and came in the window," Vogrin said. "This was a smart bear, a dangerous bear, so it was only a matter of time before someone got hurt. We're lucky it didn't happen last night."
No pity for the seal? I suppose you've seen that pc of the seal ripping the head off a penguin and think the seal deserves to be eaten.
