This Bear Smells Brownies And He'll Do Anything To Get Them

You might say that this young bear was just "following his nose" when emerged from the woods of one Connecticut woman's backyard.

The delicious smell of brownies likely drew him to the terrified woman's back door as she baked the tasty treats in her kitchen.

To her utter surprise, the young bear was peeking through the glass hoping to find a way into taste the chocolate dessert.

He climbed up onto her porch railing to get a better angle...

Hunger makes for a clever bear, this youngster was able to slide open the screen door, but had a frustrating time with the heavy glass door.

The woman was worried about what might happen if he got in, so she called her neighbor, Bob Belfiore to come through the front and help her to scare the bear away.

In spite of banging pots and pans, shouting and even banging on the door from the inside, the bear would not budge. He wanted brownies!

The bear was so determined to enter, he tried several other doors on the house as Belfiore and his neighbor called police.

"He actually left the kitchen area and went to the second set of doors off the deck," Belfiore told CBS News. "And I tried those and then went to the third set of doors into the living room and attempted to get into those."

Before police could arrive, the bear gave up and wandered back into the woods.

As bears are very food motivated, experts advise residents of bear country never to leave food outside and to always keep trash out of reach.
