Pasadena Bear Encounter

(YouTube link)

Bob and Irene McKeown of Scotland were visiting relatives in Pasadena, California, when they encountered more of American nature than they bargained for. The two left the house and locked the door behind them, but did not see the bear on the porch! It followed them to the car. That's what you see in this security video. Then Bob comes running back, trying frantically to get into the house. Where's Irene?

After helping Irene into the vehicle, Bob felt something on his leg.

“I closed the door and I looked…. a bear!” Bob McKeown said. ”You don’t know how scared you are, you just see a bear. I’ve never encountered a bear.” he added.

With his wife safely inside the vehicle, Bob McKeown ran for the stairs to let himself back into the house.

But he did not escape unscathed, the bear had clawed at his right calf.

McKeown was treated and given a tetanus shot. The young bear was seen by others in the neighborhood, and was eventually chased back into the woods. -via Daily Picks and Flicks
