A dog walker in southwest Calgary is thankful her dog is still alive after an encounter with a bear on Wednesday.The video shows a bear walking on a front driveway and scampering onto a front lawn and into a treed area.
It would seem that Gayle King isn't the only guest Oprah Winfrey's house in Santa Barbara, California.
The CBS News anchor has been spending lockdown at her BFF Oprah's house, dubbing it the "Santa Barbara Bureau" for her reporting duties. On Monday, King shared a photo and video of her reaction to being told there was a black bear roaming the property.
Unlike King, the bear was presumably not invited to spend the pandemic at Oprah's house.
TLC Posts Its Highest-Rated Quarter Ever In Key Demos, Lifted By 2-Night Oprah Winfrey Special
A two-night Oprah Winfrey special helped drive TLC to its best quarter ever in a pair of key demos with the just-ended April-June frame. The numbers were boosted by OWN Spotlight: Where Do We Go From Here?, which focused on the killing of George Floyd, its aftermath and race in America. Hosted by Winfrey and airing June 9 and 10, it reached 25.2 million viewers in Live+3 since its premiere across all of Discovery’s platforms. That includes 11.1 million unique L+3 viewers in the U.S., 6.1 million viewers internationally and 8 million views of the two-part special on YouTube and Facebook.
The property's security warned King to stay indoors while the bear was on the loose.
"A bear bear?" King asks the masked security man at the front door who confirms, yes, it is a bear of a "fair size" at the front of the residence. "It would not be advisable to go out and look right now," he adds as King laughs, asking if Oprah "has been alerted" to the bear.
The security person confirms Oprah, who does not seem to be at the residence at the time, has been alerted and Santa Barbara sheriffs had been called to see to the bear.
"Okay, that's funny," King says as she agrees to stay indoors.
