A British Columbia mother got the fright of her life when a large black bear followed her 2-year-old boy into their home.
“I thought, ‘Oh my God, what am I going to do now,'” Elery Froude told CTV News. “That was when my friend turned around and said, ‘Get the kids and get them in the bedroom.'”
Froude fled with her two sons to the back bedroom as her friend managed to back the bear out of the house.
“[The] friend yelled, banged pots and shook chairs at the bear before there was a standoff as the bear stood half in and half out of the house,” the Royal Canadian Mounted Police wrote in its report. “The family friend slammed the door on the bear before finally punching it in the nose, which made him retreat outside.
Way to go friend.
