Placer County Sheriffs made their way to a house at Northstar at Tahoe this week to look into a possible break in at one of the homes. When they got there, they found a fuzzy little animal having himself a healthy snack.
The sheriff’s office posted the below video on Thursday, showing their encounter with a juvenile bear who grabbed a snack in someone’s home:
This is what the sheriff’s office had to say about the incident:
“This afternoon, this hungry and fearless bear broke into a home at Northstar, North Lake Tahoe, to get some groceries. The homeowners called us, and our deputies were able to chase him out of the house, after he snacked on some fruit and bread!
As bears are coming out of hibernation, please use utmost caution if you encounter them. In this case, the homeowners were very grateful to the deputies who got the bear out of their house with no injuries and no property damage.”
As bears are coming out of hibernation, they are increasingly becoming more active in looking for human food in Northern California. Tahoe is having some issues with brash and fearless bears looking for food in the area. Read more about it with our article The Dangerous Bear Burglars of Tahoe.
