BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. (KABC) -- A giant and hungry bear gave a homeowner a scare Thursday.
Frank Nicholas Pirolo of Big Bear Lake shared a video on social media of the bear scrambling out of a trash can and looking right at him.
After a second of eye contact, Pirolo ran off.
He nicknamed the creature "Scare-Bear."
Pirolo said he ran because he thought the bear was coming after him, but "Scare-Bear" was just looking for food and was not acting aggressively.
