‘When I got into my car I got to let it out,’ Campbell told the show.

She said that the bear, identified as a 120-pound cub, ‘was in the bread section’ as she was in a separate area of the store shopping for fruit.

Campbell said that while she was calm in the video, she was experiencing ‘straight panic’ amid the unusual incident.

‘My instinct was, “OK, I have to figure out how I’m gonna get out of here,” because they were just shooing him outside. “How am I gonna get to my car?”‘ she said.

Campbell told the show that she didn’t immediately exit the premises after seeing the bear in the supermarket.

‘I paid for my groceries, but that was part of the panic because I was trying to wait for the bear to go farther,’ the actress said. ‘So I was panicked. I just kept paying for my groceries.

‘I should’ve just dropped the cart and just ran out while he was distracted. But I just got nervous because that looked like a baby bear to me, it didn’t look like a full-grown bear. So where there’s a baby there’s a mama.’

She added she’s ‘never seen a bear in this area’ near her Los Angeles home, adding, ‘It’s a very urban area,’ as ‘there’s a lot of people, a lot of houses.’

Campbell said that she faced skepticism from her mother and other relatives when she called to tell them about what had happened.

Campbell said she always thinks ‘two steps ahead,’ adding, ‘Thank god my mother taught me how to play chess.’

‘I just started hitting my family members, and my mother kept saying, “You’re lying, you’re lying” – nobody believed me,’ she said.

The cub eventually exited the premises and was tranquilized by wildlife officials, who later took it to the Angeles National Forest, the outlet reported.

Campbell told the show she had another scary run-in with a bobcat and coyotes during a recent trip to Arizona.

‘I have been having some type of animal attraction these days because I just left Arizona running from a bobcat,’ she said. ‘Then there were at my hotel room coyotes surrounding my hotel room howling.

‘And then I come home and then there’s a bear in the store! I’m from North New Jersey. We’ve got pigeons, we don’t have bears!’
