A momma bear and her two cubs ran into a woman's garage and went into her home Monday evening.
It happened in a neighborhood on the southwest side of Colorado Springs near North Cheyenne Canyon Park.
The homeowner says she was cleaning her garage this afternoon, and went into her backyard briefly. As she was coming around the back steps she saw two cubs in her driveway and the momma bear just across the street. She says the bears ran into her garage and inside her home.
When wildlife officers got there, the two cubs were still in the house, and the mom was across the street. All three bears were tranquilized.
Colorado Parks and Wildlife says sadly the three bears will most likely be put down.
"A sow, it's her job to teach those cubs where to find food and how to find food. We'd hope she'd teach them how to find natural foods like berries and acorns. But in this case, she's teaching them to find food in people's houses. That makes her and them both dangerous,” said Colorado Parks and Wildlife Manager Frank McGee.
