May be a bit scary to see a bear in your backyard…
Homeowners were startled to see a black bear standing on her hind legs to drink from a hummingbird feeder on their porch. The animal tilted the feeder towards her and drank every last drop of sugar water from it. The bear even licks the railing of the porch to make sure she gets everything.
She also checks out the flowers underneath the feeder. ‘You can tell she knows better, she is NOT supposed to be on the deck. That is why she leaves watching closely at the door,’ the filmer wrote. When she’s satisfied, she wanders away while the homeowner watches from behind a glass door.
The video was taken August 12 in Pennsylvania. Black bears are the most common breed of bear in the world. It is estimated there are about 600,000 in North America.
Adult black bears are capable of killing humans, but typically try and avoid confrontation with people when possible.
