After locking up their home, one elderly couple narrowly missed a terrifying encounter when they overlooked a bear on the porch, just a few feet from them!
When you're out and about in nature, you expect to see wild animals. But, it's quite another thing to witness a giant creature right in your front yard. But that is the reality for the couple on their way out of the door.
Security camera footage shows a live bear right outside Bob and Irene's home.
As the bear is walking towards the door, it suddenly opens right up. You can see the animal stop right in his tracks and the couple comes outside.
Even though you would think that a big bear would be hard to miss, these two have no clue what is right behind them. Their backs are turned as Bob locks up the house and they head towards the car.
