As she turned to look at it and say hello she realized it was a bear.
Jones said the animal had already turned away and started up the hill before she was able to snap off some photos and shoot a quick video.
In a Facebook comment, Jones said "I realize many of you find this untrue. Honestly, I don't care. I've never been more scared in my life or felt more vulnerable and pray I never experience anything like that again."
After calling neighbors, Jones said the same bear apparently has been spotted in the area over the last 48 hours in people's trash cans and on their decks.
