Two teenage boys got the scare of a lifetime when a bear sauntered into a vacation home, interrupting their Saturday night TV-watching, to help itself to a meal of taco meat, two pints of ice cream and crackers.
The teens hid behind a sliding door before a Placer County deputy eventually came to their rescue, but it was a close call, said 15-year-old Hayes Sherman, who was staying at his family’s Truckee vacation home with friend Bobby Harden.
“The whole thing was 13 minutes, but it felt like two hours,” he said. “It’s scary when you’re waiting in a scary situation. You feel like it’s forever.”
