HOPATCONG, N.J. -- Talk about a creepy encounter. A cable guy in New Jersey stumbled upon a sleeping bear in the basement of a home where he was working.

The man said he was fixing a cable when he heard a growl.

"Didn't know what it was," said Dave Cornine. "I kept working, heard it a few more times, just kept on working then I flashed a light around and finally saw him. I ended up throwing my light, throwing my tools and ran out."

Workers tranquilized the 500-pound bear and transported him to the Berkshire Valley Wildlife Management Area where it was released back into the wild.
