“My neighbor across the street just came over in a panic,” one of the resident’s neighbors said to a 911 dispatcher. “She's a little old lady screaming that a bear got in her back porch and is slamming on her glass door.”

A slim pane of glass was all that came between the woman in her Avon home and the hungry bear drawn to the house by the delicious smell of fresh-baked brownies.

"The bear apparently moved the screen slider with his paw," one neighbor told Inside Edition. 

A second neighbor's call to 911 showed how desperate the bear was for a taste of those brownies.

“We have a bear attempting to get into a house and he's not afraid of noise, screaming, or yelling, or pounding,” the other neighbor said.
