(Newser) – It was a bit like Goldilocks in reverse—but nobody was checking the temperature of the porridge. Northern California man Rodney Ginn says he came home from work and discovered a mother bear and two cubs in his kitchen. "I couldn't believe what was happening," he tells Inside Edition. Ginn, who lives near Mammoth Lakes, alerted his housemate and managed to get some of the incident on camera, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

In a short video clip with plenty of swearing that Ginn posted on Facebook, the mother bear can be seen making its way upstairs before somebody slams a door. Ginn—who also posted this photo of the mother bear—says the bears opened a sliding door and made their own way out of the house after around 30 minutes. (Last fall, hungry bears invaded this California town.)
