CANTON, CT (WFSB) - A bear found its way into a home in Canton on Monday.

According to police, they received a call around 7 a.m. that the bear entered a home on East Hill Road.

"I have a bear in my house," the homeowner said in 911 calls, which were released by police later in the morning. "I'm in my bedroom on the first floor. He was in here and he just walked out of the room."

The dispatcher in the call asked if she was safe in her room.

"I'm going to get up and close the door now," the woman said. "He pushed by burrow over."

Police said they and members of the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection were able to scare the bear out of the home.

DEEP said instances like this will continue to happen because it has no means to control the bear population in the state.

The news comes after DEEP was called to a home in Barkhamsted about a week and a half ago for a similar report.

DEEP said a bear pushed open a back door, walked past a homeowner and child and went into the kitchen for some food.

No one was hurt.

A week ago, a bear reportedly entered the living room of a home in Bloomfield and ransacked a pantry.

Canton is no stranger to bear incidents.

Back in May, one tore through a car. It was a story many people saw First on 3.
