Think of it as a goldilocks story reversed.
A bear breaks into a house, while a family is not looking. A Colorado Springs woman was shocked to wake up to a bear cub digging through her trash inside her Pegasus drive home.
A neighbor saw three bears on the backyard deck and called 911, after homeowner Carrie Alpern walked into the frightening scenario in her kitchen.
"I was about 3 feet from him. I walked in, screamed and I ran. It's my fault, I left the slider open," said Alpren.
Inside, police found the house trashed as the animals escaped to a tree.
The department of wildlife was called to the scene. All three bears were tranquilized and taken to a remote location.
