Bear falls through ceiling, disrupts party

An Alaska couple were preparing for their child's birthday when a black bear fell through the ceiling.
The bear, which was believed to be a juvenile weighing 82kg, had fallen through the skylight of the house which sits along a mountainside overlooking Juneau.

Homeowners Alicia Bishop and Glenn Merrill had been preparing for their son's birthday party when they were shocked to receive the unexpected guest.

"I was literally in the room, and I heard this cracking," said Merrill. "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."

The couple hid in an adjoining room to alert the authorities while their visitor started feasting on the cupcakes. Officials believe that the bear may have been the same one responsible for gaining entry to another home in the same neighborhood.

"There probably isn't a neighbourhood or place where we have homes where the potential isn't there for you to run into a bear or observe a bear," said Ryan Scott of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. "Bears are extremely curious and will stake out any source of food they can find."

Then again there have probably been certain other parties where a bear crashing through the ceiling might actually go unnoticed.

Like an Alpha Tau party! *lol* When a bear loses all fear of people and starts breaking into homes, it has be killed. Bears are dangerous. Wilderness and National Parks are dangerous places for the idealistic and the unwary.

Great story, we have quite a few Black Bears in our area. They tend to go after garbage cans or bird feeders and can make a huge mess. I came out one morning in the spring heading for work when I saw a 600 pounder going thru my neighbors yard. That was the biggest one I have ever seen and it sent shivers down my spine....
