Locked Inner Door Foils Bear Burglary at North Carolina Home

Ring camera footage showed a black bear opening the outer door of a home in Asheville, North Carolina, on November 2, before being foiled in its efforts by a second locked door inside.

Debbie Ellison shared the video, showing the bear rearing up on its hind legs and opening a storm door.

While holding the storm door open, the bear then tries to open the door behind, but with not luck. A separate door also frustrates the persistent bear

Ellison said she was watching television when she heard the storm door open. “Thank God the kitchen door was locked – or he would have come right in,” she said. Credit: Debbie Ellison via Storyful
