The man filming the bear attempts to scare it off by knocking repeatedly on the glass, but the furry trespasser seems unperturbed.

The man opens a sliding glass door to speak directly to the bear.

"What are you doing?" he asks.

The bear replies by jumping from the railing to a cedar tree located about 8 feet away.

"Oh my God," the man says, as the bear calmly climbs to the ground.
