June 28 (UPI) -- A Colorado man's home security camera recorded a tenacious bear scaling a 4-foot rock wall to feast on seed in a bird feeder.

Russell Rosebush, who lives in the Peregrine area of Colorado Springs, posted a video to Facebook showing the bear making it to the top of his 4-foot rock wall and felling a bird feeder to feast on its contents.

Rosebush told KRDO he thinks the same bear has targeted his feeder in the past. He said he has been taking the feeder down at night in the hopes of protecting it from the bruin, but the animal foiled his attempts by making a daylight visit at about 6:15 a.m. Tuesday.

Rosebush shared a second video of the bear leaving his neighborhood by strolling down the sidewalk.
