(CBS) — A Rockford area woman got a rude awakening Saturday morning in the form of a black bear in her yard.
Sheryl Hutchinson spotted the bear eating berries from a bush around 10 a.m.
“I was sitting at the breakfast table and he was just three feet outside the window,” said Sheryl Hutchinson.
She says the black bear drained her hummingbird feeder and drank out of a water lily pot. Then stood up to eat some serviceberries. Then left. She says the bear was not being threatening, just looking for food.
