WATCH: Bear caught on security camera near Lead

LEAD, S.D. — The owner of a cabin in Lead was surprised with an unexpected visitor over the weekend that he probably would rather not have had.

Casey Madsen sent this security camera video to NewsCenter one’s Brant Beckman and as you can see, the black bear is caught on camera just taking a walk through the yard.

The bear was caught exploring the front yard on Saturday near highway 14-A.

Madsen says the cover on the grill on his upper deck was shredded a couple of weeks back, but they weren’t sure how it happened. Now they think they have a pretty good idea.

Madsen says he’s contacted South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks because his property line actually extends into the city of Lead and the bear seems to have a keen nose for food smells.
