    Woman, 72, orders bears out of her kitchen
    Homeowner scares off mom and her cub by yelling and clapping her hands


    VAIL, Colo. - A 72-year-old woman making pot roast in her kitchen discovered uninvited guests in her home Thursday: a bear and her cub.

    The unidentified woman walked into the kitchen and found the bear standing six feet away, apparently surprising it, Vail police Sgt. Dan Torgerson said. The bear hissed at her and swatted her chest and arm, giving her some minor scratches. The woman then scared it off by yelling and clapping her hands.

    Torgerson said the bear hissed again and then left through a side door.

    "If the bear was trying to hurt her, it very easily could have," he said. "I think it was just surprised."

    The woman then found a cub in her house and she pushed it out the door, Torgerson said.

    That bear and cub are believed to be the same ones that entered another home and ate food off the kitchen counter. The owners refused to let wildlife officials set traps for bears in their homes.

    No trash had been left outside at either home but a trash can was found outside on another street and it had apparently been rummaged through by a bear. That resident was cited.

    Randy Hampton, a spokesman for the Colorado Division of Wildlife, said the bear has learned how to get food from humans and has taught its cub. If captured, he said the bear would be euthanized and its cub euthanized or relocated.

    Encounters between humans and bears are more common as bears feed to prepare for hibernation during the winter. Right now bears spend about 20 hours a day eating about 20,000 calories — the equivalent of nearly 20 Big Mac meals.

    When I was a kid I lived way back in the woods and I had to wait for my bus all alone on a dirt road around 6:30 AM. Fucking black bear walked right out of the woods across the road from me one morning and I alost shit my pants.

    I wanted to run but I was too scared and I could not yell because my throat was frozen in fear...so I coughed :o Bear heard it and ran the other way :o

    One more reason why you should always a) always keep a gun on you or b) keep a gun in every room of the house :o. That lady gets props, though.

    got my 9mm p99 on my hip untill i change into work clothes and switch to the G29, I guess if its just a black bear, whats a female 200lbs? 9mm could put it down but I'de still be running to the safe to grab the garand or tigr. If its something bigger then a black bear I wouldn't want to piss it off by using 9mm :mamoru: I might keep the cub though :o

    Says they dont think its the first time these two bears went into a house for food, that can be a bad thing if they dont have any fear of people they can be even more dangerous.
