Whitesnake star star David Coverdale had a scary encounter with a black bear at his home in Lake Tahoe, Nevada over the weekend.

The “Here I Go Again” singer tells Classic Rock magazine he confronted the unwelcome visitor after he had raided his refrigerator and relieved himself on Coverdale’s kitchen floor.

The rocker explains, “It must have weighed 450-500 pounds. It… opened the fridge, ate his fill, then took a huge poop. I came upstairs and interrupted him.

“I shouted like crazy as I couldn’t find my air horns. Thank God, he remembered where he entered… He headed for some sliding doors that we leave open when it’s hot. They’re only open five or six inches, and we have bear poles that prevent anyone or thing opening them. But I saw with my own eyes the creature rear up on its hind legs and squeeze out, taking an antique Tiffany lamp out as it escaped. Heartbreaking.”

It’s not the first time Coverdale has come face to face with a black bear in his home – one crept up on him while he was washing dishes back in 2007.
