The Big Sky community’s bear was caught on video roaming Giselle Ramirez’s backyard on Saturday night. But the video was just confirmation – the bear left evidence of his presence by upending two trash cans.

The bear left the contents of at least one of the trash cans — which included an apparently empty can of tomatoes, a McDonald’s French fry carton, and several other empty bags and boxes of food — strewn on the sidewalk. The bear was captured on camera again the next night, roaming Ramirez’s backyard.
