The [Colorado Division of Wildlife] said a family awoke shortly after midnight to sounds of the bear in their kitchen. Jack Hansell, 51, grabbed a bat and followed it into the basement. The bear bit him in the leg, scratched him and knocked him down. The bear then ran upstairs to a loft.Open doors, and food in the kitchen together with wild animals = bad idea (or maybe just bad Karma).

Going after a bear with a baseball bat qualifies as a truly stupid idea. Only likely to put you in line for a Darwin Award. Bear killed after biting man in home. - The Denver Post
