According to wildlife officials in Colorado, a bear entered a home through an open window and left after devouring cat food found inside.
According to Colorado Parks and Wildlife, the bear entered the home in Gunbarrel, Boulder County, through a window and feasted on cat food it discovered inside.
The bear finished its meal and exited through the same window, according to officials; residents were present at the time of the bear-glary, but no injuries were reported.
"You hear about that a lot more in mountain towns where a lot of homes or cabins don't have air conditioning," CPW spokesman Jason Clay told KCNC-TV. "Bears can go through windows very easily. Bears can open your front door very easily depending on the type of door handle you have."
According to Clay, bear sightings in Gunbarrel have recently increased.
"Gunbarrel is getting out on that edge where maybe residents don't expect it, and now that they know there are bears in the area, it's time to take proper precautions," he said.
Residents in bear-infested areas are encouraged to bear-proof their homes, according to the department.
According to the CPW's website, "keep all bear-accessible windows and doors closed and locked, including home, garage, and vehicle doors."
