A man came face to face with a hungry bear and bravely told him to “go away” while trying to break into his house.
A 17-month-old bear pulled down the window at a family home in Mammoth Lakes, California while looking for food.
Christian Pondella filmed the attempted robbery on July 1 and showed him holding onto his guts as the animal stares at him through the uncovered window.

The bear pokes his entire head through the window after pulling the screen down, and Mr. Pondella bravely walks over to the animal and yells “get out.”
The animal looks at him, but refuses to move and uses his paws to hold the window down.
You can hear his kids scream “hey, shoo!” participate in their father’s attempts to get rid of the hungry animal.
The bear, standing on its hind legs, puts both its front legs on the window and casually looks at the inside of the house.
You hear someone gasp as a woman politely says to the animal, “please go down.”
Mr. Pondella said that in the end he was able to let the bear leave his property because the animal refused to move through the video.

The bear visited Mr. Pondella’s neighborhood in Mammoth Lakes since spring and has been looking for food at his home at least three times.
Mr. Pondella said, “He is a 17-month-old bear that weaned from his mother recently, so he is looking for easy food.
“He’s probably been fed somewhere in a neighborhood near us, so he’s kept looking for more.”
He added that bears and other wildlife are common in the area as he and his family live near mountains.
Mr Pondella said that the bears are not aggressive towards people, but wander occasionally through the neighborhoods and campsites in search of food.
