It's like the nursery rhyme Goldilocks, but in reverse: a woman in West Vancouver came home to find a bear eating oatmeal in her kitchen!
"It appeared to be a one to two-year-old bear - a juvenile - within the kitchen enjoying some oatmeal it had obtained by breaking a ceramic food container," Sgt Skelton said.
But the bear paid scant attention as police arrived on the scene, and continued tucking in with little sign of fear or remorse.
"The bear didn't appear to be aggressive and wasn't destroying the house, so they just let it do what it was doing.
"Eventually the bear decided to make its way out of the residence and down toward a forested gully," Sgt Skelton said.
