A hungry brown bear entered a terrified woman's home and scoffed a chocolate cake before being chased out by police.

Footage taken by officers shows the bear being shooed off after breaking into a home in Simi Valley, California after rummaging through the family's fridge.

Police responded to a call from a terrified mother who had locked herself in an upstairs bedroom with her son after the bear entered through the open kitchen door.

The mother threw the officers a key from a second story window of the home, allowing them to enter.

The police had received a call from another resident the previous day after the bear was spotted in the area rummaging through trash-cans and cooling off in swimming pools.

The officers responded to the call with a non-lethal rubber projectile launcher, although it was not needed, as the bear immediately fled and climbed a tree as the officers entered.

The bear left the tree after approximately ten minutes and was cleared from the area.
