VIDEO: Bear climbs fence, wanders into Virginia backyard

- A Stafford, Va. family was surprised to see an unexpected guest in their yard on Sunday-- and they have the video to prove it. Dayana Marcsis says a black bear climbed the fence surrounding her family's home, and wandered right up next to their front window.

Marcsis shared video and photos shot from inside the house with FOX 5. On her Facebook page, Marcsis posted that she was in her yard about 15 feet away from the bear when she saw it in the woods. She writes that her dog began barking at it from the backyard, while she was on the way to pick up the trash bag the bear was after.

The photos show the bear was looking for food, which he found in the trash bag after Marcsis and her family were safe inside.

"Oh my gosh," she's heard saying on the video as the bear comes right next to their front window. "I was just pulling weeds!"
