BIG COTTONWOOD CANYON, UT – A Utah man is still wrapping his head around an encounter with a bear, inside his home, earlier this week.

Spencer Ball says nothing like this has ever happened at this suburban Salt Lake City cabin. He says the 2 to 3-year-old bear must have smelled a bucket of peanuts right inside the door, because the animal turned the knob, walked straight in and helped himself to a snack!

Ball hid upstairs and called 911. Eventually wildlife experts tranquilized the animal and brought him back out into the wild.
