A couple in Colorado were worried that their home had been robbed after seeing their kitchen was in disarray, reports Fox 5 DC.

But after inspecting security footage, they discovered that the culprit was a roaming (and probably hungry) black bear.


While no one was home, the bear had entered through an open window and went through the kitchen and bedroom, but not before striking on some piano chords.


While some were worried about what would happen if there had been people around, others were reminded of a certain children’s story:

Bear or not, everyone was reminded of the dangers of forgetting to lock up your home:

According to The Denver Post, Colorado has 17,000 bears, some of which are becoming too comfortable with going into human habitats. This poses a danger to bears, who have become victims of vehicle accidents. While these bears are interested in food rather than attacking humans, residents have been advised to make noise so that bears would keep their distance, and to keep garbage cans “bear-proof” so that bears won’t forage for human food.
