RENO, NV - A man was startled awake at about 3 AM Tuesday by what he said was a 400-pound bear that broke into his home on Bums Gulch Road off the Mt Rose Highway near Sky Tavern Ski Area.

Washoe Sheriff's Sergeant Morgan Jack said the bear was in his downstairs, had broken through the door and when it saw the man, it took off.

"It did leave it's mark I guess you could say on the porch," Jack said. By the time deputies arrived, the bear was gone. Now the case is being referred to the Nevada Department of Wildlife, because when bears break into houses it becomes a serious concern.
