A hungry black bear broke into a home in Hancock, New Hampshire early Monday morning.
The bear was found in the kitchen around 1 a.m. “looking for snacks,” according to a Facebook statement from Hancock police. No human or animal injuries were reported, and authorities reported the details to the New Hampshire Department of Fish and Game.
“Please be careful and alert,” Hancock police wrote.
This New Hampshire bear isn’t the only one making headlines this week. In Ring camera video from July 11, a large black bear is shown staggering onto a porch in North Haverhill, New Hampshire, only to be scared off by a brave dog named Thor.
Black bear sightings have been reported across New England as the animals begin their mating season. A black bear was spotted Monday in several locations across Wilmington, Massachusetts, according to a tweet from the Wilmington Police Department.
“Like any other wild animal, we will not intervene unless the bear poses a danger to people or pets,” the ministry wrote in response.
