COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Colorado wildlife officials have set a trap for a black bear with no apparent fear of people, but a definite taste for their food.

The trap placed near the home of a Denielle Backstrom of Colorado Springs was baited with doughnuts, icing, syrup and dog food.

Backstrom took video of the bear after it followed her car into her garage Wednesday and headed for the refrigerator until she shooed it away.

A neighbor, Heidi Rosburg Houger, took video on Monday of the same bear eating a gallon of chocolate ice cream and a bag of M&Ms; taken from the freezer in her garage.

Houger says the bear took vanilla ice cream from another neighbor.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife spokesman Bill Vogrin says the bear will be euthanized if captured.
