A bear has been captured on video after breaking into a house in Colorado, raiding the fridge and trashing the kitchen.

The animal spent six hours inside the home of Chris O’Dubhraic, in Colorado Springs, as he slept upstairs unaware of what was happening below.

Surveillance video shows the bear standing on its hind legs and opening the refrigerator door with ease, before investigating the contents of cupboards.

Whilst inside, it devoured strawberries, cherries, blueberries and organic apple oatmeal, the Colorado Springs Gazette reported.

The bear also ripped a pantry door off its hinges, threw food on the floor and wrecked a kitchen trash compactor.

Mr O’Dubhraic told the newspaper: "I got in the kitchen, I heard some rustling and some noise, and a shiver went up my spine. It was just the shudders."

A wildlife officer shot the animal dead after it left the property on Tuesday and then charged back towards the house.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials say the bear is believed to be the same animal that ate ice cream and M&Ms it snatched from a home in June.

They also believe it is the same bear that trapped a woman inside her vehicle a few days later while it prowled around her garage.

Bill Vogrin, public information officer for Parks and Wildlife, told the newspaper: "This bear was so fat from eating human food it couldn’t climb a tree… so it made a bed under a tree.

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

The animal got into the house through a first floor window that had been damaged in a storm.
