BRADFORD, PA — A boisterous bear broke into Fretz Middle School in Bradford, Pennsylvania the evening of Sept. 19.

Bradford School District officials say the bear charged the door at full speed and hit the window frame hard enough to pop the frame out. Officials say they believe the bear was spooked when he saw his reflection.

Officials say the video shows the bear walking through the hallway and looking into rooms around 9 p.m. until it appears to see its reflection again and runs out the same way it came in.

Only custodians were in the building at the time.

No damage was done to the building and the window has since been reinstalled.

The bear has not been seen in the area since the incident occurred.

"Fretz Middle School is such a great place to learn and grow that even the bears are knocking down the doors to get in!" superintendent Katherine Pude said.
