Bear breaks into California house and steals only one pack of Oreos

MONROVIA, California – A Los Angeles suburb has been having major problems with bears lately. One homeowner discovered that a screen door alone won't protect a window or the Oreos inside.

According to ABC7, this bear broke into a home in the 200 block of Canyon Crest Drive in Monrovia on Friday, May 24, took the screen out of the window, got inside and made off with a package of Oreos. No one was injured in the incident.

This isn't the first incident this year either. A week earlier, a smaller bear broke into the same family's car and stole a whole lot of groceries. The animal again stole a box of Oreos.

Last year, a bear broke into my neighbor Vina Khoury's garage, opened her refrigerator and stole a chocolate cake.

Obviously, in these cases, these bears may have gotten a little too smart for their own good, but it is up to humans to ensure that the animals stay out of our neighborhoods and can coexist. If you live in bear territory, make sure you are responsible with garbage, bird feeders, and other smelly bait. Keep doors and windows closed and locked, and never leave smelly things in your car. Most importantly, Never feed bears.
