Piano-playing bear raids Vail apartment

By Tom McGhee | tmcghee@denverpost.com | The Denver Post

A bruin who entered a Vail apartment last week in search of food, took a moment to pound on a keyboard, producing a sound but barely making a chord.

Police didn’t say if porridge was involved in the home invasion.

The apartment resident reported a burglary to Vail Police on May 31, when she returned to find evidence of a home invasion, Vail police said.

But a responding officer found an open window, and determined that an animal had raided the freezer and caused some damage to the apartment as it foraged for food.

The resident checked her internal camera system and discovered video of a bear wandering around the apartment. The bear stood at the piano, with its paws on the keys.
