CANTON, Conn. (WVIT) – A woman in Canton, Connecticut had quite the scare on Monday morning when a bear broke into her home.
Authorities say the 400 pound male black bear apparently pushed his way in through the woman’s screen door, before rummaging through her kitchen and walking into her bedroom.
The woman says she played dead until the bear eventually left.
Canton police responded and fired a round at the bear while it was leaving the home and heading back into the woods.
Canton Police and the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection say this is the fourth time in about a week that a bear has broken into a home in Canton.
