Animals Video

This big black bear triggered a home security camera, clambering over a residents back porch.

Tess Weaver was alerted via her phone that something was in the back garden whilst she was getting ready for work in Shawnigan Lake on Vancouver Island on April 6.

The calamitous animal climbed the four feet from the yard to the back porch, avoiding using the stairs.

Affectionately known as Boris, the adult bear then tip toes his way around the fencing as he almost slipped off entirely.

Tess said: “We had barbecued for the first time the night before and I think that’s the smell that brought him up there, the property is large and it is the strangest place for him to visit.

“We are not scared of Boris, he’s scared of humans and we want him to stay safe too.”
