Woman found bear eating porridge

A Canadian woman arrived home to find a bear eating porridge in her kitchen.

“It sounds like a nursery rhyme, doesn’t it?” Sgt Paul Skelton of West Vancouver Police told the Toronto Star.

“At least we have a health-conscious bear on our hands.”

Sgt Skelton added: “It appeared to be a one to two-year-old bear – a juvenile – within the kitchen enjoying some oatmeal it had obtained by breaking a ceramic food container. When she saw it, she did the right thing. She vacated the area and called us.”

But the bear refused to budge despite the best efforts of three police officers.

“The bear didn’t appear to be aggressive and wasn’t destroying the house, so they just let it do what it was doing and eventually the bear decided to make its way out of the residence and down toward a forested gully,” Sgt Skelton said.
