PALMER LAKE – Monday, Colorado Parks and wildlife shared a disturbing video of a black bear attempting to enter a home in Palmer Lake.

In the video, the bear cautiously makes its way onto the porch of the home and then goes to a sliding door and clearly attempts to open it.

CPW said the aggressive behavior came one night after the same bear took a bag of food from the home.
