We all know the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, surely the cutest home invasion there ever was. Well, in Upstate New York, the boot was on the other foot, or should we say paw, when a wild black bear was caught on a security camera entering the home of Stephanie Behrens in the town of Chatham.
Watch the video to see a curious bear shown the door by Harper the hero dog.
Unlike in the fairytale, the curious bear wasn’t looking for porridge, just snooping for pretty much anything it could find, including the food in the bowl of Harper, Stephanie’s dog. But dogs, like bears, are territorial. And when Harper spotted the intruder, he instantly began barking and chased the bear out, giving his relieved owner the welcome opportunity to shut and lock the door. So, Harper, the hero, saved the day, and they all lived happily ever after.
