At one point, it stands up to check out a birdfeeder on a pole in the yard.

The woman says the bear has wandered through her yard for the past three nights, and one night, it got into her trash.

The Pennsylvania Game Commission says the best way to keep bears away is to make sure there’s no food around outside.
