This is the hilarious moment a householder in South Lake Tahoe in California filmed a bear climbing along a fence in their back yard.
The young bear balanced itself precariously on top of the six-foot wooden fence while it was being secretly filmed.
A few seconds into the video, the person filming can be heard laughing which causes the bear to pause and look directly in their direction.
Hours after the video was posted online, one fan asked the owner to include the theme tune to Mission Impossible to the footage.
Another person copied the video to their own page and added the theme tune to James Bond.
