HARMONY (KDKA) — A local couple says a black bear has been snacking on their birdfeeder in their backyard.

The Ewings live in Harmony, Butler County.

“It got up on its back paws and it tipped the feeder and actually was just pouring it right into its mouth and eating all the seeds,” Patty Ewing said.

Tom Ewing says the bear helped himself to all of the feeders in their backyard.

“He seemed very agile, very nimble, he just kind of hopped around, he could use his hands just like your or I could use our hands,” he said. “He’s an impressive animal, no doubt. Smart too.”

The Ewings say they’re going to take down their birdfeeders.
