CLEAR CREEK COUNTY, Colo. (KDVR) — As expected in bear country, a video surveillance camera on a resident’s deck caught an inquisitive bear snooping around.

The animal looks quite comfortable in the domestic surroundings which is why Colorado Parks and Wildlife advise residents to take precautions.

CPW reminds Coloradans living near wildlife habitat to be bear aware. And those just visiting areas where bears are prevalent, hikers and campers should know what to do in an encounter with one of the animals.
