Black bear breaks into Idaho kitchen, enjoys Chinese leftovers
A black bear in search
of a late-night snack broke into an Idaho
house and licked leftover Chinese food
from a cast iron pan on the stove.
David Edwards of Ketchum tells the Idaho
Mountain Express that his dog's barking
awakened him around 3 a.m. Monday.
When he went to investigate what had his
dog so upset, he saw the bear on its hind
legs, paws on the stove, licking a pan.
Edwards' wife, Sara, had fallen asleep on
the couch, so he woke her up and led her
into the bedroom without telling her
about the furry dish washer.
He says she would have "lost her mind"
because she gets upset over spiders.
Edwards went back into the kitchen to
find the bear gone and the pan clean.
