Incredible footage of a bear breaking and entering has taken the internet by storm.
Despite the brown fur, this bear is likely an American black bear. An Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife wrote: “Despite being called black bears, they can also be blonde, light brown, cinnamon, or a sort of chocolate color. The “Brown” bear (Ursus arctos) and the Grizzly (Ursus arctos horribilis) have several distinguishing features from U. americanus. The most prominent difference, besides sheer size, is the shoulder hump of muscle the U. arctos possesses. They also have a somewhat concave, dish shaped face, longer blunt claws as opposed to the short sharp hooks of U. americanus, and have much smaller ears.”
Another incident of a bear break in ocurred recently in Colorado. The bear walked into a woman’s home while she was cooking some bacon. As you can see from the video below, he made himself quite at home!
