Hidden Camera Films Bear Breaking Into Home And Playing The Piano

Earlier this month, police were called to investigate a break in at an apartment in the town of Vail, Colorado.

The woman living in the apartment was away at the time, but on her return she discovered her residence had been disturbed, and so she reported it to the police. The responding officer inspected the apartment and determined that an animal, as yet unidentified, had been responsible for the damage – including a raided freezer!

It wasn’t until the lady checked her home surveillance system that she discovered the responsible party was in fact a black bear. Not only that, the footage captured the bear playing a brief, but wonderful, bit of piano.

The authorities were not too pleased with the bears performance, giving the following statement in a police report:

“The chords captured on video were unbearable and the tune was equally grizzly, according to police. Although officers searched the area, the suspect is still at large.”
