Bear Rummages In Elderly Woman's Home

Gladys Clark is thinking she ought to get herself a slingshot so she'll be ready the next time a bear comes for breakfast. The 91-year-old Montana woman said she was handy with one when she was a girl. She could have used a slingshot Sunday morning, when a bear got into her log home through an open a sliding glass door. Clark found the bear rummaging through her kitchen cupboards. She said she screamed, "What are you doing in my kitchen? Get out of here." And he did. Clark said in the 50 years she's lived on Rock Creek, she's seen hundreds of black bears -- but never one bold enough to have a look in her cupboards. She said they usually take off when she yells at them.
