The bear is seen inspecting a potted plant on the porch then turns its attention to a window.

Malpica says the bear began pawing at the window, damaging it, and then broke a storm window.

He tells ABC 36 the bear was at the home the two previous nights, tearing through his trash.

Malpica says he’s concerned because he has a young child and two small dogs.

He says he’s contacted the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife.

He hopes wildlife officials are able to relocate the bear.
