SANDPOINT, Idaho — A bear on the prowl tried to hit up a condo in Idaho.

The homeowner, Douglas Harder, was more amused than scared, because he knew the bear cub wouldn’t be able to make it through and snapped a picture instead.

Harder said he’s had quite a few visiting bears lately; one climbed onto a deck and drank his doctor pepper, and another made it inside his home through a sliding glass door and helped himself to some chocolate and brownie mix.

No one has been hurt, but Harder is hoping the state department of fish and wildlife will be able to get the bears to find a new place to forage for food.
