A young bear fell through an Alaska couple’s skylight while they were preparing to celebrate their child’s birthday, sending the humans scurrying out the room while he feasted on cupcakes.

[T]he bear that fell through the skylight of the couple’s home in Juneau is believed to have been a juvenile male weighing about 82 kilograms.

[H]ome owners Alicia Bishop and Glenn Merrill [t]old the paper [they] fled into an adjoining room and closed the door behind him, and Bishop said the animal feasted on her infant son’s birthday cupcakes.

Unfortunately, the bear was trapped and euthanized, as it was believed to be the same bear involved in another trespassing incident in the same neighborhood.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
