Thelma Bundren, a resident of the condo building in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, was in her apartment when her friends called her out to the balcony. As soon as she saw the bear climbing down the condo building across from her, she whipped out her phone to film the bizarre bear sighting.
According to local news report, the bear climbed up to the third floor balcony because it smelled garbage sitting out there. The bear can be seen climbing down, looking more like a monkey in some shots, before it lands on the ground and casually strolls away.
"I have seen plenty of bears in the 15 years I've been here," Bundren told Local 8 Now News. "But I've never seen a bear climb the balcony."
