A cable repairman in suburban New Jersey got the shock of his life during a housecall. A sleeping bear was in the basement of a house we was working on! People had reported the bear was seen in the area, but according to the WNBC-TV report, no one was sure how the bear got into the house.

Isn't that a joke? How does a 500 pound bear get into a house? Anyway he wants! Ha! The New Jersey Fish and Game officials were able to fire a tranquilizer dart at the animal, which then walked a few blocks to the Missouri Trail before it was knocked out. No one was hurt in the hubbub.

Here's the video from WNBC in New York
