There's a great video online of an elderly couple leaving a house in Southern California and walking right past a BEAR that was standing on the porch. They didn't even notice it until it followed them down the sidewalk. (The couple's names are Bob and Irene McKeown. They were staying in a relative's house, and they're Scottish, so they're not used to dealing with bears. This happened in Pasadena, where bears aren't very common, but apparently this one has been coming into town on trash days to get food. Bob says he felt the bear brush up against his leg, and at first he thought it was the dog.
