This isn’t the first time bears have invited themselves over to Doug Harder’s home in Sandpoint, Idaho.

Three bears set up shop in May on Harder’s second-floor deck outside his condo. Harder said he found teeth marks on empty soda cans and scratches on the side of the building.

Then, Harder came home this Wednesday from a few days away to find a mess inside his condo, likely left behind by a bear that managed to push through his sliding glass door. The bear apparently likes flour, brownie mix, Toblerone and Pepsi, Harder told ABC News.

The next morning, this bear was standing up on Harder’s deck.

But it didn’t stop there.

The bear’s latest break-in was Thursday night. Harder said he heard noises at his door before he found a bear trying to get in through the cat door.

Harder said he wasn’t scared because he knew the bear was too large to get through. He said he was lucky to get the shot, because within a few seconds, the bear was gone.
