Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials made the decision to euthanize the bear after deeming it an "imminent threat to the public".

During its six-hour stint, the bear devoured strawberries, cherries, blueberries and organic apple oatmeal, the Colorado Springs Gazette reported.

A bear was captured on camera spending more than five hours in a Colorado house, roaming the home's halls and even opening the refrigerator door. Thinking burglars had broken in, he checked his security camera footage and found that the culprit was actually a bear.

Wildlife officials believe the 375-pound bear is the same one that has raided garage freezers for ice cream in the same neighborhood recently. Surveillance video shows the bear standing up on its two hind legs and opening the refrigerator door easily.

Bill Vogrin with Colorado Parks and Wildlife said the bear broke another door on its way out of the house.

"This was a smart bear, a unsafe bear, so it was only a matter of time before someone got hurt", Vogrin added.
