A woman was leisurely waiting for her brownies to finish baking last week when she was startled by a persistent tapping on the glass sliding door in her kitchen.

The Avon, Connecticut resident shrieked as she looked over to find a huge black bear staring back. The bear was standing on its hind legs on top of her back deck with both paws pressed up against the glass, seemingly determined to get in.

She backed away and headed across the street to find help.

"My neighbor across the street just came over in a panic," according to a 911 call obtained by CBS affiliate WFSB. "She's a little old lady, screaming that a bear got on the back porch and is slamming on her glass door."
