SCIENCE HILL, Ky. (WTVQ) – A Science Hill family has been getting an unwanted visitor at their home over the past three days – a black bear.
Carmelo Malpica Jr. posted video on his Facebook page of the bear roaming around on his porch Thursday night.
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.
