I would not believe this if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes. There is video proof that a woman who lives in the mountains has "trained" bears to close her front door.

Here's the backstory from the lady herself about what you're about to witness:

I live...in a secluded area of the mountains. I befriended many bears and became part of their ‘clan’. This bear quickly learned how to close my front door with a little coaching from me.

A little coaching? Oh, my. See it for yourself so you don't think I'm making it up.

No...no...just please no.

For this kind lady who I have no doubt is well-intentioned, might I suggest watching the movie "Grizzly Man". It's the story of grizzly bear activists Timothy Treadwell and Amie Huguenard who lived among bears in Alaska. They were eventually killed in October of 2003 by the very bears they fought to save and protect. How could this be? Why would grizzlies kill people who loved them? Spoiler Alert: they are WILD ANIMALS. Sorry for shouting.

I hope this woman avoids that terrible fate, but it's another example of people not truly understanding that the world of wildlife needs to stay separate from ours. It just never ends well for humans or bears...no matter how cute you think they are or how much you love them.

WATCH OUT: These are the deadliest animals in the world
