BEAR ENJOYS THE SUNRISE FROM HOTEL VERANDA

A bear has been snapped enjoying the sunrise at a hotel in New Hampshire.

Sam Geesaman, an employee at the Omni Mount Washington Resort hotel, headed out to the veranda at 5 am to photograph the sunrise, but was met with the sight of a black bear holding onto the railing.

Mr Gessaman loudly clapped and stomped to shoo the bear off, but not before snapping photos which have since gone viral.

Bears are routinely sighted in New Hampshire, often finding their way into homes, campgrounds, and apartment complexes in search of food.
