A large black bear entered a La Crescenta, Calif. garage early Wednesday morning and dined on Costco meatballs, then returned later that evening.
Homeowner Joey Ball told the station that he heard noises around 3 a.m. Wednesday morning. When he opened his garage door, he found the bear sitting next to the refrigerator, eating the meatballs and tuna.
“He looked at me and I thought, ‘uh-oh!’ So I slammed the door and locked the dead bolt,” Ball told KTLA. “You could hear him eating, slapping his gums,” Ball added.
As a KTLA camera crew was at the home to report the story that night, the bear tried to get back into the garage. The station captured footage of the bear in Ball’s backyard. The station spotted the bear rummaging through trash cans in the same neighborhood a few hours later.
