The bear was hanging out in the backyard of a home Thursday. Officials say the drought has brought bears into populated areas as they hunt for food.

On Tuesday, a couple visiting from overseas had a close encounter, but didn't notice it as they were leaving

Home surveillance video shows it all. The saw them, but they didn't see the bear until later. They finally spotted the animal when it scratched the man's leg and ran away.
