A huge black bear left a family shocked when he snuck into a bedroom in their house and stood at a desk.
The Reddy family, in Fort McMurray, Alta, said they heard odd noises before discovering the beast was wandering around inside.
"My younger son came out the front door and was like, 'What are you guys doing? There are all sorts of scratching in the house,'" Reddy told CBC Edmonton's Radio Active.
"I was like, 'OK, what do you mean?' My oldest boy ran into the house and he came out and he's like 'The bear's in the hallway!' OK. That changes things."
He went on: "I could hear him snorting in there and my son had half a bowl of cereal left on his computer desk.
"We heard the bowl smash and hit the ground. I was thinking, 'What's he doing? Destroying the room?'"
As the bear wandered around the house, Sean and his neighbour managed to close the door to the room, in the hope it would exit through a window, reports CBC.
But unluckily for them, the window was shut and they were forced to barricade the hallway, open the door and let the massive animal wonder out through the house.
Sean later found out the bear had forcefully entered by knocking off a window screen and crawling in.
Although most people wouldn’t be so calm if they were suddenly confronted with a 600-pound black bear in their house, Sean said he didn’t feel threatened.
"It seemed pretty docile," he explained.
"This time of year, they are pretty comatose. They are fat, lazy, and tired."
After the bear left the home, it wandered around the local community and even visited Sean's mother's house.
The area is a hotspot for bears and animal experts Alberta Fish and Wildlife have set up a trap on the road in case it returns.
