Bob and Irene McKeown, a couple from Scotland, were visiting relatives in Pasadena when they encountered a confused bear cub. A home security system caught the McKeowns leaving the house, seemingly oblivious to the bear cub who was hanging out in the far corner of the porch. A few moments later, the video shows a shaken Mr. McKeown trying to get back into the house in a hurry. Here’s the video from the KTLA 5 news report of the incident.
“I closed the door and I looked…. a bear!” Bob McKeown said. ”You don’t know how scared you are, you just see a bear. I’ve never encountered a bear.” he added. With his wife safely inside the vehicle, Bob McKeown ran for the stairs to let himself back into the house. But he did not escape unscathed, the bear had clawed at his right calf. Bob McKeown ended up going to the hospital, but was expected to be OK after receiving a tetanus shot. – KTLA 5
