Transcript for Unbelievable Close Encounter With Bear Caught on Tape
switch gears to a remarkable close encounter caught on tape. A couple in California that got unbelievably or should we say unbearably close so the great outdoors. A trespassing brown bear makes an unexpected house call and, well, you just take a look now. It's a run-in that would have most people running scared unless, of course, you had no clue it was happening. That's what happened to bobby and Irene Mccuen seen in this video calmly locking the door of their relatives' Pasadena home while a bear lurks feet away. While they don't see the bear, the bear sure sees them. Let's back up the video. There you see the bear pauses just as the mccuens come outside. It then hangs back till they're out of sight but that shyness doesn't last long. They're visiting from Scotland and say the bear followed them to their car and at that point, oh, yeah, they noticed. Once I closed the door, it's a bear, it's a bear. Look. Reporter: The bear reportedly pawed at bob's leg which explains this much more frantic run back into the home to call 911. I run up the stairs trying to get in the door and -- Reporter: But they aren't alone. This shows a bear hanging out in the backyard of another Pasadena home much the drought in California has brought the bears into populated areas on the hunt for food. Fortunately, nobody has been seriously hurt in the area unless you count the mccuens' bruised egos. We're getting teased of how did you not see it? Just wasn't looking. They're getting a little teased because the bear was kind of a baby but still very scary. The momma is never far away. That is very true, Amy robach. I would have run. I would would have too. Glad they're okay. Back to ginger. Today's weather.
