Bear Seen in ‘Entertaining’ Video Trying to Enter Home in Washington Through Dog Door: ‘A Little Concerned’

A hungry bear tried to enter a woman’s Washington home through the doggy door, according to video of the attempted break-in.

North Bend resident Amy Hold discovered the large bear sniffing around for a snack on her back porch around 10 pm Wednesday night after capturing the furry visitor on a security camera.

“The video is completely entertaining, but I’m also a little worried about waking up in bed with the bear next to me,” Holt told KOMO.

Footage Holt posted online showed the bear carefully climbing the porch fence and standing on its two hind legs, sniffing.

Then he goes down to the porch and looks out a window.

The bruin, who had visited the house earlier, can be seen sniffing around the back door and repeatedly sticking his snout (and giant paws) through the doggy door.

After knocking on the door a few more times, the defeated bear walked off the porch and into the darkness, as the clip shows.

Holt said his two large dogs did absolutely nothing when the bear tried to break in.

“Our dogs never barked, even though he made quite a bit of noise with the dog door,” she wrote in the social media post.

“We keep yelling at him and making noise, but it doesn’t seem to bother him much,” he added.

Holt and her husband are accustomed to wildlife in their rural community and believe a bird feeder left outside may have triggered the bear’s curiosity.

“We have had bears caught on our security cameras in the past, but they have never been a nuisance,” Holt added. “We usually bring our bird feeders in at night so we don’t tempt them and we keep our trash secured in our garage.”

He said he would try to do better to secure food and trash, and urged his neighbors to do the same.

“If the bears don’t have anything available to eat, they will move on,” Holt said. “We don’t want the bears to have to be put down because they become a nuisance.”
