# Bear on the homestead
Unwanted Visitor On The Homestead | Danger For The Chickens
As I was in the garden working, the chickens were having a fit and looking toward the wood. I looked up and saw a bear coming out of the woods to check things out. You wouldn't think chickens would be an alarm system, but they can be. I quickly ran to the house to get safe if he was more than curious. I grabbed my phone and ran to get some video of him. The chickens ran to their coop, so I knew they were ok. He was checking things out and quickly went on his way.
