Bear Enters Duarte Home, Owners Barricade In Room

DUARTE (CBSLA) - A family in Duarte barricaded themselves in a room on Friday after discovering a bear had walked into their house.

The bear was in the house for more than an hour, ransacking the family's kitchen pantry and even entering their bedroom.

"I was terrified. I'm still shaking. I don't know how I'm going to sleep tonight," said Barbara Rogers, the homeowner. "I mean, he can't get back in. We're not going to ever leave that door open again."

When police arrived, the bear was still in the kitchen. Before animal control could get to the scene, the bear left on its own.
