Video Shows Bear Snooping Around Second-Story Patio Because Yes, They Can Do That
Colorado Parks and Wildlife shared a video reminder that bears can (and will) climb, especially if there could be food involved.
The video posted to CPW's Twitter shows a bear making its way up to a patio on the second floor of a home. While it did use the stairs, bears are definitely capable of climbing trees and structures, and are attracted to grills, pet food and bird feeders.
So, if you don't want one snooping around your door at night, even if it isn't on the ground level, CPW says to make sure you 'secure your attractants.'
