VERNON, N.J. (AP) — A resident in northern New Jersey got a scare after waking up and finding a black bear in the kitchen.
Vernon police say the bear broke a screen and climbed through a window. Its paw turned on the sink faucet and flooded the countertop.
Police say the bear tore through the kitchen cabinets and left once the homeowner began screaming.
The bear was gone before police arrived.
