Bear enters house, feasts on oatmeal

June 20, 2006

WEST VANCOUVER, CANADA -- It was a real-life version of "Goldilocks and the Three Bears"--only in reverse--when a woman came home to find a young bear eating oatmeal in her kitchen.

The bear apparently entered through an open sliding glass door, broke a ceramic food container and started eating, West Vancouver police Sgt. Paul Skelton said.

"It sounds like a nursery rhyme, doesn't it?" Skelton said. "At least we have a health-conscious bear on our hands."

Three officers who went to the home Thursday couldn't get the bear to budge, so they let it finish its meal.

"The bear didn't appear to be aggressive and wasn't destroying the house, so they just let it do what it was doing," Skelton said. The bear finally left.
