DEVVILLE - A Denville man was able to take some up-close and personal shots of a black bear that wandered onto his property this past week.

Homeowner Nic Godhani says that he was awoken on Thursday morning by a noise on his back deck. Upon entering his kitchen, he spotted a black bear standing on his back two legs, peering through his sliding glass door.

Godhani says the bear was searching for some breakfast and ransacked two birdfeeders which hang from a gutter. The bear eventually finished eating and walked off into the woods.

The bear’s appearance on the property is not all too surprising. The home is surrounded by woods and it is the beginning of their foraging season.

Godhani says that he changed the type of birdseed he has been using, but has not moved the feeders.
