With impeccable timing, it showed up at a home this week just as its owner was baking the treats.

The owner tells NBC Connecticut that it wasn’t the first time she’s seen the bear in her backyard. But this time, the massive animal stood on top of the railing of her back deck, peering inside. She also told the station that it stayed for about half an hour.
