Fimi Stepanian saw a bear splashing in her backyard pool from her window.
The bear had balloons from his 40th birthday party. It also used the pool vacuum and popped a shell floating.
“I had my 20-pound maltipoo with me and was worried the bear would be able to smell him,”Stepanian.
Stepanian felt afraid as the bear ran out of the swimming pool.
She locked herself in her office with the dog.
“I was worried that since the bear was no longer in the pool, it could be on either side of the house,”He said. “If I tried to walk to my car with my pup the bear could reach me faster than I could reach my car.”
