NORTH BEND, Wash. — A bear was spotted Wednesday night attempting to get into a North Bend home, even reaching into a doggy door and it was all caught on security camera.

Amy Holt tells KIRO 7 that the bear first tried to get into a hummingbird feeder, but the feeder was empty.

He then balanced very carefully on a deck wall and tried to push in a window at a couple of spots.
