Hungry bear rousts man from bed

June 2, 2009 12:00:00 AM PDT
A Calimesa man was awakened by a strange racket this morning; he got up, looked out the window, and found a large bear rummaging through his trash cans.Leonard Bosinski said he went to get his camera, and by the time he got back, the bear had scurried up a tree in the backyard of the home in northwestern Riverside County.

"He was sitting right there," said Bosinski, "Was there for maybe two minutes. I was talking to him and asking him if he was hungry." When asked if the bear responded, Bosinski laughed and said, "He just kind of drooled a little bit."

Then, just as quickly, the bear scurried back down and scampered off.
