Camera captures woman flipping out as bear runs through yard

Missy Hawes freaked out as a bear cub galloped across her lawn.

ALTADENA, Calif. (WTHR) - A home security camera captured a woman's hilariously terrified reaction as a bear ran through her yard.

Missy Hawes was standing outside her Altadena, California home with her grandson when the bear suddenly appeared. She quickly scooped up the baby and rushed inside as the animal ran across her lawn.

Locals say the bear, whom they've dubbed "Rufus," is a frequent sight in the area. They say he enjoys digging through the trash, swimming in pools and, apparently, nearly causing heart attacks to his neighbors.
