The Bear That Fell Through A Skylight And Ate All The Cupcakes


A kid’s birthday party in Juneau, Alaska, went from normal to bizarre and scary recently. A young black bear fell through a skylight window during the gathering. From the CBC:

The home owners, Alicia Bishop and Glenn Merrill, told the Juneau Empire the bear landed in their living room.

“I was literally in the room, and I heard this cracking,” Merrill told the paper, describing the sound of the skylight’s plexiglass creaking under the bear. “And the next thing you know, there’s this bear that, I mean, literally, fell right from (the skylight). It was like one metre away from me.”

Merrill told the paper he fled into an adjoining room and closed the door behind him, and Bishop said the animal feasted on her infant son’s birthday cupcakes.

Bishop told the paper that she opened a door from the living room that led to the backyard and that the couple yelled at the animal until it casually walked out of their residence.

The animal didn’t harm any humans, but officials believed it could have been the same bear that entered another home in the same area. Sadly, they “destroyed” it to be on the safe side.
