Bear eats out of bird feeder that got squirrel-proofed

WISCONSIN (NBC/WEAU) – A Wisconsin woman got quite the surprise when she looked outside her kitchen window.

Anita Sacia captured this video of a bear eating out of her bird feeder in her frontyard Tuesday.

She says she recently got a squirrel barrier to keep them from eating the bird seed but didn’t think she’d also have to worry about bears!

For safety, Sacia says she’ll probably put away the bird feeder for now.

The bear didn’t harm anyone, and once the feeder was empty, it was on its way. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
