It's a case of a bear-eaking, but not entering after a bear was left looking a bit sheepish after failing to get into a house through a cat door.

The bear poked its nose through the pet door of Idaho man Doug Harder's home last week, ABC News reports.

Mr Harder said he wasn't scared because he knew the bear was too big to get through the small door.

It wasn't the first time the uninvited bears had visited the Schweitzer Mountain home in recent times, though each came as a complete surprise.

In May, a bear and two cubs climbed up the side of his house onto the second floor to get at seed in a bird feeder.

On another occasion last week, a young bear had broken into his home while he was away and eating flour, brownie mix, Toblerone and drinking Pepsi.
