ASPEN, CO (KGO) — A bear on a mission for something to eat turned into a home invasion and a scary encounter for one man.
Dave Chernosky was visiting and staying with friends near Aspen, Co., when he was awoken early Friday morning. Chernosky went into the kitchen and saw the bear looking through the cupboards.
“Four hundred and fifty pounds,” Chernosky said. “He was looking me in the face when I came around the corner in the hall. He was eyeball to eyeball.”
He was able to coax the bear into the garage.
Almost in the clear, Chernosky opened the garage door so the bear could leave, but the animal was spooked by the noise and responded by attacking.
