GRANBY, Colo. — A western Colorado woman said a "very graceful, very calm" bear crawled into her house through a pet door, ate a bowl of dog food, uprooted some herbs in pots and then left after about 10 minutes.

Brenda Freeman said the encounter occurred Saturday at her and her husband's home.
Freeman said they spotted the bear in their mudroom after their 120-pound dog let out a combination bark and growl.
They closed the door from the mudroom to the kitchen, then watched through a window as the bear explored the room and chowed down.
Division of Wildlife spokesman Randy Hampton said bears normally eat berries this time of year, but a wet spring has kept bushes flowering longer instead of producing fruit.
