A birdfeeder hanging from a shepherd hook outside a Somers residence is now the property of a determined bear after a bit of a battle.

Robert Vargo shared a video that shows a bear using one of its paws to pull the hook down, then using its mouth to get a better hold.

The bear then managed to get the bird feeder in its mouth. Victorious, the bear scampered off with its newfound treat.
